City of Compton Welcomes You 1

Compton, located just south of downtown Los Angeles, has a population of 96,000 people. A staggering 40 percent of residents do not work, and 23 percent live in poverty. Although Compton very much still struggles with its poverty and crime rates, it’s become far less dangerous than it was in recent decades. The city also has produced its fair share of successful people, including a plethora of professional athletes and rappers like Coolio and Dr. Dre.
