46% of the population of San Diego was born here. Voice of San Diego thinks that’s low. But it seems high to me — I would have thought it was single-digits.
Our former next-door-neighbors lived in the same house something like 50 years. That’s extraordinary rootedness for this time and place. But they weren’t born in California; they moved here during World War II.
This is, as Voice of San Diego says, a city, and county, of transplants.
