Census Data Sheds Light on Demographic and Economic Data in the Bay Area.

We love data and have been eagerly awaiting updated U.S. census data.    

The following information was released in early December and while not entirely focused on Real Estate, we find it to be an interesting snapshot of our world right now.


The wide variety of data below covers the following topics:
  • What percentage of sellers are moving out of California?

  • How many Californians moved to Texas in 2019?

  • Which party’s presidential candidate increased their percentage of vote in 2020?

  • How much has employment bounced back from the initial pandemic plunge?

  • What county has the highest life expectancy?

  • What are the differences between male and female median incomes in the Bay Area?

  • When asked about religious affiliation, what percentage of residents responded with

    “nothing in particular”?

  • What has been the decline in Chinese-national home purchases over the past 4 years?

  • Which county has the highest percentage of residents living in poverty?

  • How much income is required to buy a median-priced house in San Mateo County?

  • What national ancestry is claimed by the highest number of residents?

  • What county has by far the highest median age?

Note: Data is from a variety of sources – some brand new, some older, depending on availability. Deemed reasonable reliable but may contain errors. All numbers should be considered very approximate.
