California 2025: It’s Your Choice

Ellen Hanak and Mark Baldassare

PPIC’s California 2025 research study found that trends and forces are building that, left unchecked, could seriously erode the quality of life in California in the next two decades. The study concludes that is imperative for policymakers and others who influence policy in the state to begin asking some hard questions and making some well-informed, careful choices now. California 2025: It’s Your Choice describes the trends, shows where they-re leading, and puts some options on the table to stimulate a discussion starting with the simple, but difficult, question: What kind of California do you want?
