Abstract

The Population Projections Report will forecast the relative 2010 to 2020 shifts in population between different areas of California, and the likely effects of those shifts on legislative and congressional representation. The project relies on data from the 2010 Census and American Community Survey (ACS) data from 2011-2017. The project aims to provide an analysis of possible shift in representation, so local municipalities can strategize plans for upcoming hearings with the Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC) concerning proposed district lines. In 2021, California will draw new state legislative and congressional districts based

on official data from the 2020 census. The census will be taken on April 1, 2020, and final results are expected by March 31, 2021. Using those official figures, the California Citizens Redistricting Commission will propose district lines for the state legislature, congressional delegation, and the Board of Equalization. The new maps will reflect the relative shifts in populations between various areas in the state, and the state’s projected loss of one congressional seat. The 2022 elections will be the first to use the new district lines.
