Los Angeles Sees Significant Population Decline

La Opinn, Posted: Dec 16, 2009

LOS ANGELES1.2 million people have left Los Angeles over the last eight years, several of them Latino immigrants, reports La Opinn. According to the news report, a recent Brookings Institute study suggests that 815,000 were immigrants and the majority of them Mexican.

According to the news report, the largest exodus occurred during the 2005-2006 real estate boom, when many families moved to other regions of California and nearby states where housing costs were lower. As a result, the populations of Las Vegas, Nev., Phoenix, Ariz., and Riverside, Calif., which saw one of the highest national migration rates during 2003 to 2007, grew significantly. Los Angeles County is home to 9.9 million people, of whom 3.5 million were born abroad. An estimated one million of them are undocumented.
