A 2014 Los Angeles Times analysis showed that more than two-thirds of City of Los Angeles employees live outside of the city. Only 21% of Police Department employees lived in Los Angeles and only 16% of Fire Department employees. Primary reasons given were high cost of housing and low impressions of Los Angeles public schools. It was further found that higher paid city workers were more likely to live in the city than lower paid workers.
