Researchers estimate the state's population will reach 50 million by 2046. That's 14 years later than projected in earlier studies.
The study also found that native Californians represent an ever-growing majority of the state's population. In 2010, more than 90 percent of children under 10 were native Californians. By 2030, 57.2 percent of adults aged 35 to 44 will be native Californians, up from 38.5 percent in 2010, the report found.
