Center for the Study of Los Angeles

Undergraduate research is the driving force for the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Center for the Study of Los Angeles. Our students gain hands-on experience conducting and analyzing exit polls, surveys, and demographic studies. The Center’s expertise in leadership studies, voting patterns, and diversity research puts us at the forefront of understanding the complex, dynamic city of Los Angeles. 

All reports and presentations are available in the Projects and Reports section. If you are looking for something on this site and do not see it, please email us at
