Mapping Gentrification in L.A.
A joint project from the UCLA and UC Berkeley is mapping gentrification and displacement in L.A.'s neighborhoods. The Urban Displacement project monitors where gentrification has happened or is currently happening in Los Angeles County.
You can explore the project's findings on an interactive map which shows which neighborhoods have gentrified over the last twenty years. The map also allows you to view other demographic and economic data about Los Angeles' neighborhoods side-by-side with the gentrification data.
Among the key findings of the project is that neighborhoods around public transit stations are the most likely to be affected by gentrification and displacement.
The Urban Displacement project is also mapping displacement and gentrification in the San Francisco Bay Area.
