New Census Data Reveal an Aging, Increasingly Multi-cultural California

New U.S. Census figures show Californians are graying, and that the state's population is getting more ethnically diverse. Also, when asked about their race, a growing percentage of Californians check more than one box. The number of California residents who said they belong to two or more races jumped almost 13 percent between 2000 and 2010. In the Bay Area, the increase was even bigger. Host Stephanie Martin talks with San Francisco State University's Wei Ming Dariotis, who studies and writes about mixed-heritage populations and works with many local multi-ethnic non-profit organizations.
