Disparities abound in federal stimulus awards

Los Angeles County, the state’s largest with 10.4 million people, received the most funds, $4.4 billion. But the next-largest amounts went to much smaller counties. Sacramento County, whose 1.4 million residents make it California’s eighth largest, has been promised $3.9 billion, while Alameda County, slightly larger with 1.6 residents, will receive $2.3 billion.
