Semi-protected edit request re: info box[edit]

Most city info boxes include ranking next to metro area population in the city info box. Please consider adding it to this page. So, instead of:

population_urban = 12,150,996[1]

population_metro = 13,131,431[2]

population_blank1_title = CSA

population_blank1 = 18,351,929[3]

These lines would be:


population_urban = 12,150,996 (2nd) [4]

population_metro = 13,131,431 (2nd) [5]

population_blank1_title = CSA

population_blank1 = 18,351,929 (2nd) [6]

Lead paragraph is apparently no longer accurate as to motion picture production[edit]

On-location feature production as of 2014 is about half of its peak in 1996. When even Paramount has thrown in the towel and outsourced feature production to Vancouver, it would seem more accurate to state that Los Angeles was historically a leader in motion picture production and continues to be a leader in motion picture development. Although chroma key greenscreen now makes it possible to film almost anything anywhere, at least most major producers still have their offices in LA (for now). --Coolcaesar (talk) 09:04, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

The WP:lede should reflect whatever the body of the article says. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 20:06, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
Good point. Which means the article itself needs to be revised concurrently. I will have to think through that. Of course, if anyone else is thinking along the same lines, feel free to jump in. --Coolcaesar (talk) 11:25, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Full name[edit]

If I did not get it wrong, the full name of the city would be El pueblo de Nuestra Señora Reina de los Ángeles de la Porciuncula, also El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles sobre El Río Porciuncula. It was stated also in the Guinness Book of Records, as the longest city name in the world. Actually, if you type this name, you will be redirected to Los Angeles page. Could it be worth to add a small section about the city's name? Filippo83 (talk) 11:15, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Native American population in Los Angeles[edit]

Native Americans and Alaskan Natives (including Latin American Indian groups) are a low-percentage, yet notable part of the population. Los Angeles is thought to have the largest Urban Indian community in the United States (est. above 100,000-about 2% or higher upwards to 5% of the city population) who belong to over 100 tribal nations. There are between 2,000 to 25,000 members of the Cherokee Nation based in Tahlequah, Oklahoma in the city and county respectively. There is the local Chumash tribe whose homeland encompasses the Los Angeles Basin and Central Coast of California. Native Americans in Los Angeles, like throughout the country, are referred to an "invisible minority" in the press. [1] 2605:E000:FDCA:4200:A97F:3DC4:37A3:68EB (talk) 23:07, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
