We're #211

As our long time followers know (Hi Mom!) May 1 is the day the state releases the new population estimates for cities and counties. "The E-1" as it's called in the biz, is appropriately titled "Population and Housing Estimates for Cities, Counties, and the State." 

Perfect title.  Right?  Leave it to the state...

So what's this E-1 all about?  

Throughout the year, state demographers collect all sorts of data from local jurisdictions
--that's us--about changes in the community.  They then do all sorts of extrapolations  and provide population estimates. (We've been waiting for just the right occasion to use the word "extrapolation".)

Here's the results:

Monrovia's population as of January 1, 2015 is estimated at 37,406.  This is an increase of 227 people or 0.6%.  Monrovia ranks 211 out of California's 482 cities.

Los Angeles County's population increased 0.8% to 10,136,559.

California's population is now estimated at 38,714,725, a 0.9% increase.
