It’s been a rough year for many Los Angeles County residents, and the latest survey shows that nearly two-thirds of them think they’re losing out financially.
That’s the third-highest percentage of renters who believe they are losing money.
But in Los Angeles, the number of people saying they are actually losing money has been steadily rising.
This is despite the fact that Los Angeles has seen a gradual decline in the number and severity of fire deaths since 1990.
The Los Angeles Times/Los Angeles Times Survey on Livable Communities released Wednesday found that a whopping 57 percent of respondents in L.A. County say that the economy has improved since they moved to the area, with 46 percent saying it’s gotten worse.
Of the respondents, just 35 percent said the same of the housing market, and only 11 percent said they had seen a positive change in the quality of life.
The results come as Los Angeles is still trying to recover from a massive wildfire that destroyed much of the downtown area, which left more than 1,000 people homeless.
About 1,100 homes and businesses were destroyed and another 1,500 damaged, but that doesn’t include the more than 2,000 homes that were evacuated and the hundreds of homes that are still in ruins.
Many of the residents surveyed by the L.L.
L, which has been tracking housing affordability issues, have been seeing a drop in income, and that’s led to an uptick in the percentage of people living in poverty.
Nearly a quarter of Los Angeles renters reported that their monthly income dropped by at least $1, and one-third said they lost at least 20 percent of their income.
In comparison, just 4 percent of the respondents in the survey said their income went up over the past year.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a statement that Los Angelenos have been working hard to rebuild their neighborhoods.
“We know that rebuilding our neighborhoods is critical to helping our residents stay in their homes, and I am grateful to the Los Angeles Fire Department for the incredible efforts they are making to support our residents,” Garcetti wrote.
“We know the challenges Los Angeles faces.
We know that when we work together, our communities are stronger.
We need all of you to continue working to keep our communities livable for everyone, not just the few at the top,” Garcinia added.
