    By 2020, California is projected to have a population of 43 to 46 million people.  According to the US Census Bureau, currently the state’s population is just shy of 37 million.  It is unclear how this growth will occur.  Nearly 95% of the state’s inhabitants live in urban areas, and most of the land in Southern California is highly urbanized and developed where as the North has stricter slow-growth policies.

    California’s current population is about 37 million individuals. The census projects that by 2020, there will be just over 44 million individuals, a growth rate of about 19%.

    California used to have massive growth from 1970 to 1990 due to economic successes. However, since that time rents have made people move away and the state’s growth rate decreased from 2.5% to just 1.4%. The U.S. Census Bureau predicted California will add 16 million people by 2020. Mostly due to migration increases (hispanics and asians), young and old increases, and central valley development.
