Santa Clarita, California Population 2018
Santa Clarita is a city located in the state of California. It is located in Los Angeles County, where it is the fourth largest city by population. Santa Clarita has a short history as a city, as it was incorporated in 1987. However, because of annexation the city’s population has grown quite rapidly in that short time period. The last recorded population at the time of the 2010 census was 176,320. This number has since risen to 181,972, per recent estimates. The city’s total area is 52.81 square miles with a population density of over 3,449 people per square mile.
The last census taken in 2010 shows that the city’s population is 70.9% white, 3.2% black, 8.5% Asian, 0.6% Native American, 0.2% Pacific Islander, 12% other races and 4.7% multiracial. Close to 30% of the total population is of Hispanic or Latino descent. People between the ages of 45 and 64 make up the largest age group—or 27.2% of the total population. Over 26% of residents are under the age of 18, while just 9.6% are at least 65 years old. There are more women than men living in Santa Clarita, with 97.1 males for every 100 females. About 9.5% of the city’s population lives below the federal poverty line. The city has seen its population jump significantly since being incorporated. However, census data show that population growth is slowing. Recent estimates show that the population is up just 3.2% from the last census in 2010. However, continued growth—even at a slower rate—will soon push this California city past the 200,000 resident mark.
