In 2020, California saw its first population drop in its history. Between 2020 and 2021, the population fell by 182,000 people. According to the Associated Press at the time, California has been experiencing net-negative migration in recent years, with more inhabitants moving out than in.

In the year 2021, 34 of the 58 counties lost population. Plumas County, which lost 3.2 percent of its population, Lassen County, which lost 2.8 percent, and Butte County, which lost 2.4 percent, had the biggest drops. San Francisco County, in particular, lost 0.8 percent of its population.
Los Angeles County lost 0.7 percent of its population, or roughly 70,000 people; San Diego County lost around 1,200 persons, or 0.04 percent; and Orange County lost about 7,300 people, or 0.2 percent.
Every coastal county lost population except three, according to the report: San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz. The significant number of college students returning to campus after COVID-19 contributed to the growth in those counties.
