Compton East

California is the most populous state of the United States. Located on the Pacific coast of North America, it is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. California is known for its pleasant climate and ethnically diverse population. The name California is most commonly believed derived from a storied paradise peopled by black Amazons and ruled by Queen Califia.
East Compton, also known as East Rancho Dominguez, is an unincorporated community and census-designated place, CDP located in southern Los Angeles County, California. The population was 9,286 at the 2000 census. It is an area of low-density residential land use and is a mostly Latino community.
