It’s not just you.

San Diego is getting more crowded.

The city experienced the 8th largest amount of growth since the year 2000 among 85 metros in the Western United States. During that time the city added about 500,000 new residents.

We took a deeper dive into the numbers to try and figure out where and why people are flocking to the area.

Among our findings: More than 32 percent of new San Diegans are Californians from other parts of the state. The next biggest group of new residents is immigrants from abroad, more than half of which are from countries in Asia.
