Ventura County is a county in the southern part of the U.S. state of California. It is located on California's Pacific coast. It often referred to as the Gold Coast,[citation needed] and has a reputation of being one of the safest populated places and one of the most affluent places in the country.[citation needed] It is ranked as one of the 100 highest-income counties in the country and as the sixth wealthiest county in California by per capita income.[citation needed] This is partly because it is part of the Tech Coast Area, and has a large presence in technology corporations like telecommunications, healthcare, development, and especially biotech corporations, most of which are located in the Conejo Valley.[citation needed] As of December 2008, the median home price was $355,000.[1]

As of the 2000 census, the county had a population of 753,197. A more current California Department of Finance estimate places the population at 813,052. The county seat is the city of Ventura (formally known as San Buenaventura). Ventura County's largest city is Oxnard, with a population of about 200,000.
