Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

California is home to more Americans 100 years or older than any other state, according to a new Census Bureau report, but its percentage of centenarians and other over-70 residents is below the national average.

The report says that in 2010, 53,364 Americans were over 100 years old, including 5,921 in California, topping No. 2 New York's 4,605 and Florida's 4,090, but with just 1.6 percent of its population listed as centenarians, it was a bit below the national average of 1.7 percent and way below the leading centenarian state, North Dakota, at 3.3 percent.

California also fell under the national average in residents aged 70-79 (4.7 percent), 80-89 (2.7 percent) and 90-99 (0.53 percent).
