San Diego County home to nearly 3.3 million people according to latest U.S. Census Bureau report

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego County’s population is up to nearly 3.3 million people, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The organizations reports the area added more than 200,000 residents in the five-year span leading up to Jul. 1, 2015. San Diego County is home to the second-largest (3,299,521) population in California, behind only Los Angeles County (10,170,292).  

The county saw a 6.6 percent increase in population over the period the results represent. The report points to natural increases via birth and migration from other countries as the leading causes for the growth in density. 9,732 more people moved away from San Diego County year-over-year than moved in, according to the findings, which helped offset the increases.

Texas saw the biggest population gains in the nation in counties around Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.
