People gather at South Alvarado Street and West 7th Street, on Thursday, an area with high density of Latin American descent immigrants resides in Los Angeles.

 

Highlights of the demographic report released Thursday by the California Department of Finance:

— Within 20 years, California's ethnic composition will be 46.7 percent Hispanic, 30.7 percent white, 13.5 percent Asian, 4.7 percent black and 3.7 percent multiracial; less than 1 percent will be American Indian.

— By 2060, Hispanics will comprise nearly half the state's population, 48 percent.

— California's population will hit 40 million, equivalent to the current population of Argentina, in 2018 or 2019. It is projected to hit 50 million in 2049.

— In 2010, Hispanics were a majority in nine of California's 58 counties; by 2030, that will grow to 13.

— Blacks would slip below 5 percent of the population by 2050.

— By 2060, California will have 13 counties with a population of 1 million or more.

— California's median age will rise from 35 to 42 over the next 50 years, but the state will not age as rapidly as many other states primarily because of immigration.

— Southern California will lead the state's growth over the next half century, adding 8.3 million people by 2060.
