qualified as our Communities of Interest, with an average population of 3,323. (See Table 2. below for a count of these communities by county).

At least 50 percent or more of all CDPs in each of our eight San Joaquin Valley counties met the criteria to be included in our Communities of Interest as did nearly 7 in 10 CDPs in the Valley as a whole. Kern and Tulare counties have the highest number of CDPs in the Valley and contribute over 50 percent of the total Communities of Interest for the entire region. Twenty out of 21 CDPs in Tulare County met the criteria to be included in our Communities of Interest, while 63 percent of Kern County’s CDPs were similarly qualified. Madera, San Joaquin and Stanislaus had the lowest proportion of their total CDPs that met our filter criteria.

The share of each county’s total population living in CDPs that met our criteria to be included in our Communities of Interest varies significantly by county. More than 1 in 7 residents in Tulare County live in our Communities of Interest as do more than 1 in 10 in Kern County. The total population in the 83 Communities of Interest is roughly 237,000. (If the 134 other Communities of Interest, mostly smaller islands, had an average population of half that of the CDPs, they would be home to another 220,000 residents.5)
