As Los Angeles gears up for the 2010 census, a recent USC study has found that California's adult population will soon shift from a majority of non-natives to natives,. which has political, educational and economical implications. They are products of the school system, for better or for worse," said one of the principal study authors who pointed out that natives would more likely vote in higher taxes to see a better return in education funding. As of right now, more than 70% of Californians ages 15 to 24 were born and raised in the state with nearly two-thirds of state residents 45 to 54 years old were born out of state, the LA Times noted.
