This page was created by the Data Desk, a team of reporters and Web developers in downtown L.A.

Welcome to The Times’ map of the neighborhoods of Los Angeles, your portal to our community pages for the city. Click on a neighborhood above to see a more detailed map with information about schools, income, demographics and news from your area.

The 114 neighborhoods were delineated with your help, using more than 1,500 critiques and suggestions sent in by readers when the first version of the maps launched in February 2009.

The neighborhoods cover the 468 square miles of Los Angeles, which in 2008 had an estimated population of 3.75 million, up from 3.69 million counted in the 2000 U.S. census, the basis for The Times’ demographic analysis of each neighborhood.

Moving beyond the city boundaries, The Times has added interactive maps and statistics for 158 cities and unincorporated places in Los Angeles County, opening the conversation about the places we live to the entire county. Readers have not just commented on the boundaries; hundreds sent notes — short essays, really — on the places they live. They were informative, humorous, thought-provoking and often eloquent. We hope to keep that conversation going. Please use these pages to tell us more about the places you live.

In the weeks ahead, we plan to keep adding to the information you’ll find, including crime statistics for Los Angeles and the 40 cities and numerous unincorporated areas patrolled by the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.
