CAPS 'Children' Ad 2014
Between 2000 and 2010, California's population grew by 3,390,000 and the state is expected to add another 13 million people by 2050 based on current population projections from the California Department of Finance. However, native born Californians are having fewer children than in the past. Based on U.S. Census Bureau and California Department of Public Health data, the state's population growth is being driven by mass immigration and births to immigrants. During the 2000 to 2010 period, 2,580,000 immigrated to California and 2,474,300 births were to immigrants.
