About the district

Lakewood lags behind the rest of Washington based on median income, poverty levels and higher education achievement. The 2010 U.S. Census found the median income in Lakewood was $42,273 while the state median income was $58,890. The city's poverty rate was 18.1% compared to the state's 12.5% poverty rate. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (21.5%) was lower than the state average (31.4%).
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.
