I have always admired the Los Angeles Times for the accuracy of its contents. In fact, rather than subscribe to one of the San Diego papers when we moved here, I opted for The Times.
Unfortunately, you have let me down. I am referring to the article and statistics regarding Lake San Marcos which appeared in the North County Focus section April 1.
Specifically, I am calling your attention to the doubtful statistical references to: Racial/ethnic mix, median income, education, etc.
Where did The Times obtain these figures? Can it substantiate them as being factual for Lake San Marcos? Or were they simply taken from the city of San Marcos?
If, as was mentioned in the article, the cost of a single-family home is an average of $278,000, I doubt that the median household income is only $30,289. I also doubt that with such affluence there are 12% without a high school diploma and that 32.7% were only high school graduates.
