Census 2010 paints a different picture of San Diego

This afternoon the U.S. Census Bureau released neighborhood-level data for California, to be used in the redistricting process. San Diego county's population grew by 10 percent, with some distinct changes in demographic composition.

Within San Diego, the Hispanic and Asian populations each grew by more than 30 percent, while the non-Hispanic White, Black, and Native American populations actually were smaller in 2010 than in 2000. San Diego joins many California counties that are now "majority minority" (meaning the non-Hispanic White population accounts for less than half of the total).
