LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities will release the first detailed data for California’s population from the 2010 U.S. Census on Tuesday.

The release will include data on population, race and ethnicity that will be used by a state commission to redraw congressional and state legislative districts.

The data was sent to California’s governor Monday.

The Census Bureau reported in December that California’s population reached 37.3 million in 2010 after growing 10 percent during the prior decade.

It is the first time the state will not gain additional House seats after a census.

Demographers say they expect the state’s inland areas grew as Californians moved beyond the expensive coastal region, but that migration may have slowed since the economy slumped.

They also expect the state’s population increase stemmed largely from growth in the Latino population.
