In 2007, the estimated population of San Francisco was seven hundred thousand nine hundred seventy six.  This would make the population density at this time nearly sixteen thousand people per square mile.  This makes San Francisco the second most densely populated major city in the United States.  San Francisco is known to be the traditional focal point of the San Francisco Bay Area and also forms part of the greater San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland Combined Statistical Area.  This combined population of these areas in over seven million and is the fifth largest in the United States due to the 2000 census.

Like Los Angeles, San Francisco is a minority-majority city.  Non-Hispanic Caucasians comprise less than half of the population.  In 2006, the Census Bureau estimated that nearly forty five percent of San Francisco’s population was non-Hispanic Caucasian.  Asian Americans compose about a third of the population in the city and Chinese Americans constitute the largest single racial group within San Francisco at around one fifth of the population.  The Hispanics in San Francisco make up around fourteen percent of the population.  The African American population has been in decline over the recent decades.  In the 1970s, they made up thirteen percent of the population and as of 2006, they make up only seven percent of the population.  It is noted that the current percentage of African Americans in San Francisco is very similar to that of the whole state of California.

Thirty five percent of San Francisco’s population was born in the city.  Only thirty five percent of is population was born in California.  Thirty nine percent of its population was born outside of the United States.  The American Community Survey done in 2005 has put San Francisco as having the highest population of gay and lesbian individuals within any of the fifty largest United States cities.  Fifteen percent of San Francisco’s population is gay or lesbian.  San Francisco has the highest percentage of same sex household of any other American county.   

Average income per household in San Francisco was fifty seven thousand eight hundred thirty three and median family income was sixty seven thousand eight hundred nine in 2005.  This is the third largest for any large city in the U.S.  An out-migration of middle class families is contributing to income disparity and has left San Francisco with a lower proportion of children, which is fourteen percent.  This is a lower percentage than other large American city.
