Subcenters in the Los Angeles Region
AbstractWe investigate employment subcenters in the Los Angeles region usingâ€™1980 Census journey-towork data. A simple subcenter definition is used, based solely on gross employment density and total employment. We find a surprising dominance of downtown Los Angeles and three large subcenters with which it forms a nearly contiguous corridor. Two-thirds of the regionâ€™s employment, however, is outside any of the 32 centers we identify. Most centers have high population densities in and near them, and their workersâ€™ commutes are just 2.4 miles longer than other workersâ€™ commutes. A cluster analysis of employment by industry reveals several distinct types of centers, and a Wide dispersion of sizes and locations within each type.
