  • About Forecast LA

    Forecast LA is an annual conference that integrates a triad of forecasting metrics: the opinions of residents, the opinions of leaders, and traditional economic indicators. Exploring the civic and economic concerns, cultural identities, and levels of satisfaction in the Los Angeles region, Forecast LA aids decision makers in shaping the future of LA by providing annual snapshots of the region. These snapshots provide a comparative framework that depicts trends across time, demography, and outlook in the Los Angeles region. This holistic approach distinguishes Forecast LA from other regional forecasts which focus on economic indicators but exclude public opinion and the perspective of regional leaders. Resident and leader opinion surveys are conducted by the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Center for the Study of Los Angeles. 

    The Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Center for the Study of Los Angeles at Loyola Marymount University is one of the leading undergraduate research centers in the nation. It is a respected leader in public opinion surveys, exit polling, and leadership and community studies. Founded in 1996, the Center also conducts groundbreaking research on voter preferences and voting patterns, quality of life concerns, and contemporary urban issues. The Center provides rigorous, mentored research experiences for undergraduate students at LMU.
