El Segundo's population grew steadily from the town's inception, but spiked dramatically after World War II. With limited available space to build housing, the town's residential population eventually leveled off at just over 16,000. That number will increase slightly with construction of several large multi-unit condo and townhome complexes. While many families descending from the town's original settlers have remained in El Segundo through multiple generations, the city has seen a large influx of new residents in recent years; many of them younger, educated professionals. They choose El Segundo not just because they work here, but also because of the community's excellent schools, low crime, quiet neighborhoods, city services and small town amenities.
Meanwhile, El Segundo's daytime population peaks at approximately 70,000 people on a daily basis, thanks to the vast number of employees who work here.
