Southern California is in many ways an attractive place to live, with weather, quality of life, and amenities being the biggest draws. However, a 2005 survey sponsored by the UCLA Ralph and Goldy Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies found that despite these positive features, residents still do have some serious concerns. Residents indicated that transportation, the economy, education, crime, and housing were the most important problems in the region. Transportation was, by far, the most cited concern, both overall and across demographic groups.
