California Economic Forecast

Millenials are working and paying off student loans, delaying having children.

Mark Schniepp of the California Economic Forecast reports that California's population growth between 2018 and 2019 was the lowest since records have been kept, beginning in 1900. The rate of growth over the last year was 0.5 percent. The slowdown is due to high home prices, high taxes, bad traffic and millenials who aren't having children, he said.
