I attended a NorCAN conference at Bear River today – the topic being about change and bias in the non-profit communities.  They presented the following demographics with the “community” demographics being generated by the 2010 census and the schools demographic breakdown provided by the California Department of Education for the school year 2014-15.  I believe it’s all based on family self-reporting, so it’s hard to know how ethnically hybrid individuals are counted.  Most likely they are reported as P.O.C. when one portion of ancestry  is white, but there’s no way to be sure of that.  Also the percentages do not total 100 because not everybody reports on the ethnicity question.

Point is, the white population is aging, and the community is changing.  We need more career opportunities to keep any kids here obviously, but I wonder if the growth of P.O.C. populations is based on gentrification refugees from the Bay Area.

I don’t have the figures for Sohum, but I will post them when I do.
