California's population will rise to 60 million by 2050 from 36 million today, and by 2042 Hispanics will be in the majority, according to a state report released Monday.

Hispanics will make up 52 percent of the state population by mid-century, the state Department of Finance forecast. Whites will comprise 26 percent, Asians 13 percent, blacks 5 percent and multiracial residents 2 percent.

In Sacramento County, the population is expected to be 2.2 million in 2050 from 1.2 million today. Yolo County is expected to grow from 170,000 to 328,000; El Dorado County from 159,000 to 314,000; and Placer County from 252,000 to 751,000 by 2050.

Southern California is expected to have the highest rates of growth. Los Angeles County is expected to have more than 13 million, an increase of 3.5 million people by 2050.
