How would you rate the service/characteristic as it relates to your city or area as a whole using the scale good, fair, or poor?

Since 2014, StudyLA's annual Los Angeles Public Opinion Survey of over 2,000 residents has asked respondents to rate 39 different city/county services and characteristics. These 39 questions are divided into six major themes: transportation, crime and safety, built environment and recreation, community and culture, utilities and services, and employment and affordability. Survey respondents rate each item using the scale good, fair, or poor. The percentage for each theme is the compilation of the "good" rating within each of the Los Angeles County service planning areas (SPAs).
