San Fernando Valley Economic Research Center
U.S. Census Bureau
The San Fernando Valley is a geographical area that is not defined by jurisdictional boundaries. As such, no data exist for the Valley as an entity. The San Fernando Valley Economic Research Center collects Valley-specific data from a wide variety of primary sources and we sincerely appreciate their efforts and cooperation. The Center also extracts data pertinent to the Valley from broader data sets. Zip codes, census tracts, community and city names, and other means have been used to identify Valley -specific records.

The San Fernando Valley had a population 1,696,347 in 2000. A recent estimate by the Los Angeles County Urban Research Unit and Population Division puts the 2004 population at 1,808,599.

The largest cities entirely in the Valley are Glendale and Burbank. The largest sections of Los Angeles in the Valley are North Hollywood and Van Nuys. Each of the two cities and each of the two sections of Los Angeles mentioned has more than 100,000 residents. Despite the San Fernando Valley's reputation for sprawling, low-density development, the Valley communities of Panorama City, North Hollywood, Van Nuys, Reseda, Canoga Park, and Northridge, all in Los Angeles, have numerous apartment complexes and contain some of the densest census tracts in Los Angeles.
