Like the Second District, the Third District is dominated by a single County. Sacramento County accounts for 51.33% of the total population. San Joaquin County is another 23.65%. Butte is 8.52%, Yolo County is 7.08%, and the remaining counties are much smaller.
Nearly all of the Third District cases originate in Sacramento County. For the decade of the nineties, the Supreme Court decided 28 cases from Sacramento. There were two cases from San Joaquin County and one each from Yolo, Trinity, Sutter, Butte, Nevada and Calaveras County.
