Revised U.S. Census Figures Higher for 4 Westside Cities

January 31, 1991|NONA YATES

Revised figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau last week showed moderate upward adjustments in the population totals for Beverly Hills, Culver City, Santa Monica and West Hollywood.

The figures were revised after city governments complained that specific residential blocks were missed in the nationwide census last year.

They may be changed yet again up to July 15, depending on a review by the U.S. Commerce Department.

Released last Friday, the new figures still showed that the four cities are losing population or growing at a slower rate than expected by state demographers, who used a different methodology based on birth and death records, drivers' licenses, and construction and demolition permits.

The table shows the latest totals announced by the Census Bureau, followed by the preliminary figures released last August, the final figures from the 1980 census and the state estimates for 1990.

Separate figures are not yet available for the Westside portion of the city of Los Angeles, or for unincorporated communities.
