California’s population declined for the second consecutive year, bringing the Golden State’s total to 39,185,605 as of January 1, 2022, local authorities announced.
California, which is still the most populous state in the US, dipped slightly by 117,552 last year. The authority blamed the population loss on a declining birth rate coupled with an increase in deaths from the Covid-19 pandemic.
