A more detailed county-by-county analysis will be available soon, but a few facts illustrate the considerable variation:

  • Tulare (29) had the highest number of Communities of Interest located in areas distant from cities (hinterlands), followed by Kern (19) and Fresno (7).

  • Tulare had the highest number of Communities of Interest (28) circumscribed within the boundaries of cities (islands) followed by Fresno (24), Stanislaus (23) and San Joaquin (20).

  • Given its total population size, Kern County has relatively few islands in its cities. Bakersfield contains 6 of the county’s 9 total islands.

  • Fresno’s unincorporated communities tend to be smaller on average than the communities in other counties.

  • The unincorporated communities are highly Latino, White or a mix of both. Although currently African-American and Asian populations are relatively smaller percentages of these communities, historically both groups have faced similar challenges in the San Joaquin Valley. For example, in the early in the 20th Century Allensworth, a predominantly African-American town faced significant discrimination in efforts to secure water. The unincorporated settlements of Allensworth (Tulare)7, Home Garden (Kings)8, Fairmead (Madera), Easton (Fresno), all have significant number of African American residents.
