About this Research

This report provides a comparative look at the demographics of California and Los Angeles County electorate, voters, and residents from 1994 ("Then") to 2019 ("Now") to understand the impact of Prop 187. Data from the U.S. Census Bureau and California Secretary of State are analyzed to study trends in the makeup of the two geographies. The proposition's impact is captured through political representation, voter registration, and total population data examined as well as demographic shifts in the makeup of both the electorate and the voters by race and ethnicity and by political affiliation.
