    Peruvian-born in Los Angeles County

    Los Angeles County’s Per­uvi­an pop­u­la­tion is spread widely with no dis­tinct cent­ral Per­uvi­an dis­trict. There are nearly 27,000 for­eign-born county res­id­ents who list Peru as their place of birth — with Van Nuys, Santa Clar­ita and Reseda hav­ing the largest num­ber of Per­uvi­ans in the re­gion. Hol­ly­wood, which may next year be home to the “Peru Vil­lage” mark­er, ranks 15th among neigh­bor­hoods. NOTE: Be­cause of the lim­ited sample size of the census es­tim­ates, mar­gins of er­ror can make the res­ults un­re­li­able for smal­ler areas like census tracts.
