Demographics
West Valley ~ Warner Center Chamber of Commerce

In December 2006, the first separate U.S. Census data compilation for the San Fernando Valley was released. This first-ever, demographic snapshot of the San Fernando Valley quantified the Valley's population, median household income, primary language spoken in households, median age, and employment statistics.

The Los Angeles Daily News created a profile of the average San Fernando Valley resident, based on the newly released data. The article stated that the average person would be a Caucasian woman, 35 years old, a high school graduate who is married, with one child, owning a two-bedroom home. She would have been born in California, employed in management, professional or related occupation, making $50-80,000 a year. The household would have two vehicles, a monthly mortgage of $2,00 or more. The home would be valued at $500-999.000.

The San Fernando Valley Census shows:

  • Population = 1.74 million
  • Median Household Income = $51,717
  • Foreign-Born Residents = 41.6%
  • English-Only Households = 41.2%
  • Travel Time To Work = 29.0 minutes
