Mobile Home Population

July 14, 1989|Clipboard researched by Kathie Bozanich and Rick VanderKnyff / Los Angeles Times; Graphics by Doris Shields / Los Angeles Times

Unlike the county's stock of mobile homes, which has decreased slowly since 1984, the mobile home population has remained relatively steady during the last five years. After taking a 1.4% dip between 1984 and 1985, the number of residents increased between 1985 and 1987 and remained level during 1988. A city-by-city look at population shows that the unincorporated areas, Anaheim and Buena Park all have significantly smaller mobile home populations than was the case in 1984. The cities with significantly larger populations than in 1984 include Costa Mesa, Santa Ana, San Clemente, Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. Here's a city-by-city look, ranked from highest percentage loss in population to highest gain:
