Interesting demographic change has officially happened in California. More from the Los Angeles Times –
The official confirmation had to wait until new population figures were released by the Census Bureau this summer. The new tally, released in late June, shows that as of July 1, 2014, about 14.99 million Latinos live in California, edging out the 14.92 million whites in the state.
California is now the first large state and the third overall — after Hawaii and New Mexico — without a white plurality, according to state officials.
The Latino population is relatively young, with a median age of about 29, while the aging white population has a median age of 45. State demographers project Latinos will account for about 49% of Californians by 2060.
