Block group established around E. 5th Street, S. Los Angeles Street, Boyd Street, and S. San Pedro Street
“This block group from downtown Los Angeles has been considered to be the most dangerous in the U.S.”, according to Bonviller. As he mentioned, “only in these few blocks, 55% of the households that were surveyed by the 5-year American Community Survey, were actually living with less than $10,000 a year between 2014 and 2018 and earned less than 99.8% of all American block groups.
Here, the average household income is around $9,175 per year. 83% of the questioned residents were male, which is a factor that’s directly associated with a higher crime rate, and about 80% of the population that’s 16+ weren’t in the labor force, which is more than 99% of U.S. block groups.
