A Portrait of Los Angeles County using the Human Development Index
A Portrait of Los Angeles County, a report by Measure of America, is an in-depth look at how residents of America’s most populous county are faring in three fundamental areas of life: health, access to knowledge, and living standards. The Human Development Index – a composite measure of health, education and income – is the featured measure and is disaggregated by gender, race and ethnicity, gender by race and ethnicity, major Asian and Latino subgroups, and nativity at the county level. The index is also presented for 106 cities and unincorporated areas within the county, 35 City of Los Angeles Community Plan Areas and 15 City Council Districts. This dataset and the accompanying report is intended for policymakers, planners, service providers, advocates, journalists, students and anyone with an interest in exploring well-being outcomes among the many communities that make up Los Angeles County.
