California Counties: 38 Million Served and Counting
In recent years we began using the motto “California Counties: 38 Million Served” to show the magnitude of the task that our 58 counties face very day. And while the state’s official population was a bit under this figure, it’s safe to say that there are thousands of individuals who go uncounted – individuals to which counties provide a safety net. Despite some of the more analytical types here at CSAC claiming our slogan wasn’t precisely accurate according to official state population figures, we stuck with it.
Well, the Golden State’s population is quickly zeroing in on 38 million – at least according to the most recent population estimates released yesterday by the State Department of Finance.
