Hispanics have become the largest racial or ethnic group in California. In 2020, there were about 15.6 million Hispanics in California, up from 14.0 million in 2010. The next largest group, the non-Hispanic White population, declined from 15.0 million to 13.7 million during this time, reflecting a broader national trend. According to the Pew Research Center statistics, Latinos accounted for 39% of California’s population in 2020, among the highest shares in the country.
