The State of California will continue to grow at the same rate and number of inhabitants from 1980 to 2000 that it did in the previous twenty years from 1960 to 1980. It will slow down in the next 20 years from 2000 to 2020. Within the State the south accounts for the largest increase in the number of inhabitants and the mountain counties the highest rate of change. The Bay Area is the slowest growing area. The central valley is a rapidly growing area. Currently the State's increase is due equally to natural increase and net migration.
