10th Anniversary Los Angeles Riots Survey

Explore the data from this Los Angeles Times poll, which deals with the complex issues of race relations and police brutality.  Taken on the tenth anniversary of the Los Angeles riots, this survey features questions about the Rodney King verdict and how the city has changed, for better or for worse, over the past decade.  Further questions include whether or not rioting took place in the respondent’s neighborhood, the effect of riots on local businesses, and progress toward racial and ethnic groups getting along.

The data was collected from April 18th – 22nd, 2002 of 1,163 residents of Los Angeles plus an oversample of  African-Americans via telephone.
