Updated: 2010 Census--San Marino White Population Down, Asian and Hispanic Populations Up

The 2010 U.S. Census figures for California detail, among other statistics, population breakdowns for San Marino, the county and the state.

San Marino's white population has decreased and the Asian and Hispanic populations have increased, according to 2010 U.S. Census Bureau figures released Tuesday afternoon.

The Asian population in San Marino in 2000 was 6,286--only 109 people greater than the 2000 Census San Marino white population of 6,177.

But the 2010 Census figures for San Marino show a greater population difference between the city's most prevalent races. 

While the San Marino Asian population has increased almost 12 percent from 6,286 in 2000 to 7,039 in 2010, the white population has decreased by 12 percent, from 6,177 in 2000 to 5,434 in 2010.

Asians comprised 48.6 percent of San Marino's population in 2000 and now make up 53.5 percent of the city's overall population.

Hispanics have the third highest racial population in San Marino, though at 855 in 2010, it is considerably less than the white and Asian populations. It is notable, however, that in 2000 the San Marino Hispanic population was 571, meaning a 49.7 percent increase has occured in that racial population in San Marino over the past ten years.

San Marino's overall population increased by 1.6 percent, from 12,945 in 2000 to 13,147 in 2010.

The population of those 18 and older (eleigible to vote) in San Marino increased by 2.15 percent, from 9,520 in 2000 to 9,725 in 2010.

Los Angeles County remains the largest county in California.

LA County’s population increased 3.1 percent from 9,519,338 in 2000 to 9,818,605 in 2010.

California’s overall population rose 10 percent from 33,871,648 in 2000 to 37,253,956 in 2010.
