San Francisco County is the Most Democratic County in California

Next month, the United States will finally elect its next president after nearly two years of campaigning, fundraising, scandals, and debates. The Democratic party has never been perfectly unified. In this year’s Democratic primary, disagreements among registered Democrats seemed especially acute. Approximately 12 million Americans voted for former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, versus the 15.8 […]

Amador is the Most Republican County in California

In just over a month, the United States will finally elect its next president after close to two years of campaigning, fundraising, scandals, and debates. Republican candidate Donald Trump is considered an outsider to politics and the party. As a result — and because Trump’s views have sometimes clashed with the party’s vision — some […]

California is Among the Worst States for Black Americans

The Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts of 1965 made great strides toward racial equality. However, this legislation — ending decades of government-sponsored racial oppression and intended to reverse the effects of hundreds of years of slavery — by no means resolved racial inequality in the United States.

The U.S. population grew by 0.79% over the last year, just slightly faster than the previous year’s growth rate but still among the slowest rates in decades. While the nationwide growth was slow, population increased much more rapidly in other parts of the country. Over the past five years, many of these same cities have […]

People in California Drive Less Than in Most States

Americans drove 3.15 trillion miles in 2015, breaking the previous record of about 3 trillion miles set in 2007. Driving is certainly a major part of life in the United States. Driving habits vary considerably between states, however. To determine in which states drivers travel the most, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data from the Federal […]

California is the 11th Most Dangerous State for Pedestrians

Once introduced, cars quickly became part of America’s culture — but with the automobile also came driver, passenger, and pedestrian traffic fatalities. Per capita traffic fatalities, including pedestrian deaths, have declined by nearly 30% in the last decade, but they remain a serious problem. In 2014, 32,675 people died from traffic-related car crashes, nearly 15% […]
