The region experienced significant economic and population growth through most of the latter half of the 20th century.

Land that was used for agriculture is now being sold by owners for conversion to shopping centers, industrial warehouses (warehouse), etc. Due to the lack of the Inland Empire having just one central city, and the smaller geographical footprint that suburban cities tend to have, this continuous development has become seemingly unplanned suburban sprawl as local interest and zoning laws may

The '''Inland Empire''' ('''I.E.''') is a metropolitan area and region of Southern California. It is situated directly east of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The term "Inland Empire" is most commonly used in reference to the U.S. Census Bureau federally defined '''Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario metropolitan area''', which covers more than 27,000 square miles (70,000 km 2 ). The metropolitan area consists of Riverside County (Riverside County, California) and San Bernardino County (San Bernardino County, California).
According to the Census Bureau, the counties of San Bernardino and Riverside are home to over 4 million people, and together they comprise the 13th-most populous (Table of United States Metropolitan Statistical Areas) metropolitan area in the United States, and the third-most populous (California census statistical areas) in the state of California. Most of the area's population is located in the southwest of San Bernardino County and the northwest of Riverside County. At the end of the 19th century, the Inland Empire was a major center of agriculture, including citrus, dairy, and wine-making. Agriculture declined through the 20th century, and since the 1970s a rapidly growing population, fed by families migrating in search of affordable housing, has led to more residential, industrial, and commercial development. The U.S. Census Bureau also combines the Los Angeles metropolitan area and the Inland Empire into one larger region known as the Greater Los Angeles Area with a population of over 17 million.
