How are you inferring the 15% Jewish figure for LA County again Alcon?  Well, I see that the white non Hispanic population for LA County in 2007 is 29%, so I guess I get the source numbers for your little equation.  Smiley  Man,  how things have changed.  But I like LA a lot more now, than when I was a kid. And so it goes.

Well, since we have Hispanic and most Asians already, I just took the "Other" percentage and assumed a break-down based about on the '08 estimates for black, whites, the other Asian demographics and other ethnicities...well, it's rough.  But it's ballpark and I think it demonstrates the point well enough.  Tongue

A white person in Los Angeles probably knows at least twice as many Jews, on average, as a percent of their social group, as one in Marin.  Or so goes my theory.

Jews in lightly populated conservative counties where they are few in number percentage wise as well, would seem to have blended in, haven't they? Granted the sample error is large for such a small one, but so far, it seems to be a consistent pattern. I guess the real test will be when we see what the Jewish numbers are in Orange County, which has about 150,000 Jews.

The Jewish numbers in Kern County are pretty extraordinary. Maybe they are Jews 4 Jesus?

I am skeptical of these numbers. They claim that all these "hick" counties are 3-4% jewish while marin having far higher % than LA. These numbers are way off.

The self-provided voter identifications are wrong?  How?  Tongue

I mean, Los Angeles County passed Proposition 8.  Obviously, it's not all WASPs and Jews.  Marin having the highest percentage of Jews seems very reasonable to me.  It's an almost uniformly affluent county.  LA County ain't.

Unless I fundamentally misunderstand how they collected this information, I don't know how they could possibly be off.  Jews in L.A. lie more?  "Everyone in L.A. lies more!"

Edit: That or the ethnic abbreviation "jew" stands for something other than Jews.  I still have no idea why CA would track Jews but not blacks.  Mysteries all-around.

I HAVE BEEN UP IN MARIN AND LIVED IN THE IN LA MOST MY LIFE AND COULDN'T NOTICE IT UNLESS THEY ARE A LOT BETTER ASSIMILATED THAN THE ONCES IN LA. I STILL THINK THE NUMBERS FOR A LOT OF COUNTIES ARE WAY EXAGGERATED.

I am pretty sure you don't mix with blacks, hispanics and asians who make up the vast majority of the population of LA county. So among the people you do interact with, Jews make up a significant part of the population (this is assuming most jews are white and I think that assumption is reasonable to make). Also Marin county is a mostly white, rich and liberal place just north of the city. Why is it surprising if 8% of them are jews?

Okay, I know it's pothead country, but are a full 10% of Mendocino voters really registered Green/Peace and Freedom/Libertarian/etc.?

Also %Obama > %Democratic + %DTS...

Verily:  8.71%, actually, but rounding just worked out that way.  The reason:  Just over 4% of Mendocino County voters belong to the Natural Law Party.  I don't want to spend bandwidth to download the state file again, but offhand that's over eight times the rate of NLP registration in Orange County.

Obama also beat Democratic+DTS in Marin County, less surprisingly.  His performance in Mendocino versus registration is pretty impressive for a less affluent county though, even if I imagine nearly all of the non-wasted NLP vote (edit: no pun intended) flowed to him.

Well per OC, the Jewish chameleon theory in California anyway is still holding more or less, which surprises me.

OC Jews seem to be the type that may have been apart of the national Jewish GOP trend since 1992 (10% to 25%).

Maybe the real test will come when San Diego County comes in.

The computer that had the Excel spreadsheet I wrote to automate this got broken.  I'm not sure I'll have time to recreate it for a while, but I have off until 1/18 so we'll see.
