Los Angeles County Population Now Estimated At More Than 10.07 Million:

The population of Los Angeles County was estimated at more than 10.07 million as of July 1, an increase of 0.56 percent from the same time last year, the state Department of Finance reported Thursday.

The number of LA-area residents increased by nearly 55,800 over the one- year period, the state agency’s annual report on the population of California’s counties shows. The region has added about 200,000 people since 2010.

According to the report, Los Angeles County recorded more than 126,500 births and over 61,000 deaths in the one-year period beginning July 1, 2013.

Orange County’s population was estimated to be 3.13 million, an increase of 33,000 people, or slightly above 1 percent.

The report said almost 38,500 people were born in Orange County during the one-year period and 19,000 died.

As a whole, California’s population increased 0.88 percent during that period to 38.5 million. The total represents an increase of more than 335,000 people.

The agency derived the estimates by looking at driver’s license change of address applications, tax returns, school enrollments and vital statistics like births and deaths. According to the report, the birth rate in California is continuing a downward trend, especially with births to teen mothers.

Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Santa Clara and Riverside counties added the most people during the one-year period, accounting for about half the state’s growth.

The estimates are used by state agencies, county governments, academic institutions, private research organizations, the media and the public for budgeting, needs assessments and distribution of state funds — among other things.
