CALIFORNIA SECOND IN PROPERTY VALUE Los Angeles County has approxi- mately one-fortieth ~,f the total weahh of the /'nited States, according to igrank V. \tumid, editor of Southern California Business, the official maga- zine of the Los Anveles Chamber of Coillnlerce. If the value c,f l,rol)qlty in Southerll California outside ~f Los Anvcl,:s County were inchuled in the COllq~uta- tion, it wouhl he found that Southcru California has aplwoximately one- thirty-fifth of all the property \alucs in this country, and if the whole state were included the showing wonhl be still better. h is shown thai Califl)rnia is second oi all the stales in realty values, be- in~ second only to New York. The figures for the six leading states of ~reat wealth in their order are: New York ................ $17,346,633,44.] Califln'nia .................. 13,434,608,169 Ohio ............................ 10,918,868,619 l'ennsylvania ............ 9,902,024,976 Illinois ...................... ,. 8,163,756,298 Michigan .................... 7,007,917A~) The assessed valuation of property in Los Angeles County is $2,834,736,214. Since the assesssed vahlation is only 30 per cent of the real valuation, it is fotmd that the real property value in Ij~s A'ngcles County today is $5,669,- 472,426. ]:urthcrmore, it is fotmd that only ten states haxc a greater rcalty value than l.os Angeles Connty alone and only oue other C(~lln!y ill the country runs :thead of Los Angeles and that is New York County with an actual \aluation of $6,931,757,(~KI. Cook Coun- ty, Illinois, includin.u Chicago, has an actual vahlation of $3,oA)7,073,938, or- nearly $2,000,0~t,000 h'ss than I,os An- velcs Cotnlty.
