California sees nation-leading population declines in Los Angeles, San Francisco

California counties and metropolitan centers saw some of the largest population declines during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to data released this week from the U.S. Census Bureau.

San Francisco County saw America’s second-highest population decline at -6.7% – only outpaced by New York County with a 6.9% drop. Nearby San Mateo County saw the fifth-highest percentage decline at -3.5%, according to the data.

In terms of sheer numbers, Los Angeles County saw the most significant population loss of any county nationwide, losing nearly 160,000 residents in 2021 (though the county was not in the top 10 for percentage decline). Despite these population losses, Los Angeles County remains the most populous in the nation as of July 2021 and is home to more than 9.8 million residents.


The data comes as part of an annual estimate from the U.S. Census Bureau, which showed that the number of deaths surpassed the number of births in most U.S. counties in 2021. According to the data, 73% of counties are experiencing a “natural decrease” – up from 55.5% in 2020, according to the data. Experts said that fewer births, an aging population and increased mortality, which was “intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic,” contributed to this rise.:snip:
