According to a 2005 survey sponsored by the UCLA Ralph and Goldy Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies, Los Angeles County residents mention transportation, the economy, crime, education, and housing as the most important problems in the region. Transportation was by far the most cited concern, both overall and across demographic groups. Respondents who cited these top problems were more likely than others to indicate that local officials’ performance in improving the problem was inadequate.
