Census 2010: California counties by growth

Today's release of 2010 census data for California looked at population totals, as posted earlier, and at how much counties grew (or shrank in three cases) since 2000. The big gainer was Riverside — that big, dark-green horizontal slab in the Census Bureau map — which swelled by a whopping 41.7 percent. Notice overall that the greenest, fastest-growing areas are inland, and the left side of California had the slowest growth.
