The California Census as it was carried out in 2010 can be referred to through the online source of the www.census.gov webpage, which encourages residents of the state to make themselves available for the gathering of population data. The California Census in this year was accordingly carried out to gather generally applicable on April 1.
The state government-administered California Census website thus encouraged residents to allow for population data to be collected on themselves and their loved ones in regard to, as one potential source of encouragement, the importance of the California census, as with the national census, in directing the federal government as to how distribute some $435 billion in funding.
The population data accordingly collected by the US Census Bureau from the California Census for the 2010 period indicated that the state’s population was, as far as could be discerned by the agency, made up of close to 37 million people, against the 307 million people in the country as a whole.
Moreover, population data generated by the California census and subjected to statistical interpretation indicated that a little over 25% of the people in the state were under the age of 18. By contrast, California census population data indicated a population of over-65 California residents amounting to about 11% of the state’s whole population.
The California census also found that about 76% of the state’s population considered itself “White,” 6.6% “black,” and 37% “Hispanic or Latino.” In the “white persons not Hispanic” category, meanwhile, the California census placed 41.7% of the population.
