The four-county Sacramento region added an estimated 25,400 people from July 2005 to July 2006, while Yuba County had the highest percentage population growth of any California county over the same period.
The new estimates were released this week by the U.S. Census Bureau for counties across the United States. California added more than 300,000 people during the past year, increasing the state's population to almost 36,457,600.
The Greater Sacramento growth amounted to about 8.4 percent of the state's overall estimated population growth for the year. The growth in the four-county area paled next to other parts of the state. Riverside County alone added an estimated 81,411 people in one year.
Nine of the 58 California counties saw an estimated loss of population, with the largest, 2,134 people, in Monterey County, the Census Bureau estimated.
Two of the four local counties -- Sacramento and Placer -- each added more population than the estimated 6,900 or so that became residents of Los Angeles County.
In the four-county metro area:
* Sacramento County added an estimated 11,301 people to reach 1.375 million, up 0.8 percent. The one-year growth was sixth-highest among all California counties by sheer numbers and No. 29 by percentage of growth.
* Placer County added about 9,374 people to reach more than 326,000, up 3 percent. That was No. 8 in the state by number and No. 5 by percentage. The county has grown 31 percent from 2000 through 2006, first in California and 41st in the nation over than span.
* Yolo County added about 2,994 people to top 188,000, up 1.6 percent. That increase ranked No. 23 in the state, and the rate of increase ranked No. 16.
* El Dorado County added 1,747 to exceed 178,000, up 1 percent. The increase ranked 26th out of 58, and the rate of growth ranked 27th.
Yuba County, which has seen a flurry of new housing at the south end closest to Sacramento since 2003, had the fastest growth rate of any county in California from 2005 to 2006. It added an estimated 3,252 people to reach about 70,400, up 4.8 percent.
The four-county Sacramento region has added more than 270,000 people from 2000 through July 2006, the Census Bureau estimates, up 15 percent to 2,067,147.
Flagler County, Fla., had the highest growth rate of any county in the United States from 2000 through 2006, growing 66.7 percent from 49,835 to 83,084. The Census Bureau excluded counties with a population of less than 10,000 people from that calculation.
