Angeleno Poll

About This Study

StudyLA’s Angeleno Poll is the largest general social survey of any metropolitan area in urban America. The survey provides an important overview of respondents’ quality-of-life perceptions, economic concerns, overall life satisfaction, and opinions on various regional civic issues. Since 2014, StudyLA has reached more than 22,000 residents through the survey, resulting in hundreds of thousands of hours of meaningful conversations about the future of the region.

2024 Angeleno Poll

While some questions are unchanged from year to year for longitudinal analysis, new questions are added every year to reflect topics relevant to Angelenos today. The eleventh annual survey includes questions on housing, climate change, labor, allowing non-citizen parents or guardians to vote in school board elections, the Supreme Court's decision to eliminate affirmative action, artificial intelligence, and the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games. 

Webinars and Data Releases

Each one-hour event will focus on a different topic and feature a moderated discussion with guests who will lend their expertise and weigh in on the survey results.
