US Census is biggest source of new hiring in California

June 18, 2010
California unemployment dropped a tick in May to 12.4 percent from a revised 12.5 percent in April, even as thousands of people entered the workforce. But most of the new jobs created in the state the past two months have come from one source: the federal government's census. Private sector employment is stagnant, and construction, trade, transportation, finance, education and health care all reported job losses in May.

Consumer group suggests robust insurance exchange

June 16, 2010
A leading consumer group is pushing the Legislature to take full advantage of flexibility in the new federal health reform that that allows the state to establish an insurance pool for individuals and small businesses. In a report released today, CalPIRG calls the insurance exchange a "game-changer" that will give small purchasers of health insurance the same clout in the marketplace long enjoyed by large employers and institutions -- but only if the Legislature designs it right.

June 14, 2010
California lawmakers have taken the first steps toward putting in place a part of the federal health reform designed to make it easier for people with previous medical conditions to buy insurance. The Assembly on Monday passed AB 1887, by Assemblyman Mike Villines, which will make California eligible for about $760 million in federal money over the next three and a half years to manage an insurance pool for high-risk consumers and subsidize their coverage.

The link between urban design and health

June 11, 2010
Health policy, Dr. Richard Jackson says, is about more than medical care. It is about farm policy. Transportation. Housing. And so much more. Because how healthy we are is determined largely by where and how we live. Jackson, a professor of Environmental Health Services at the UCLA School of Public Health and the former state health officer for California, is an expert on the connections between urban design and health. He was the lead speaker at a conference in Sacramento last month that brought together environmentalists, planners, physicians and developers to share ideas and look for common ground on issues connecting the urban environment and health.

Independent opinion polls show that a majority of Californians back federal health reform, but Tuesday's primary election results will put those surveys to the test this fall.

California’s white population declines by half million in 8 years

June 6, 2010
California's white population is shrinking, both in raw numbers and as a percentage of the state's population, according to a new demographic report from the state's Department of Finance. Numbers for the years 2000 through 2008 show that the state lost 518,000 whites, from natural causes -- deaths exceeding births -- and from out-migration to other states and countries. Whites were the only racial or ethnic group to decline in raw numbers during that period.
