Lewiston is the second largest city in Maine and the most central city in Androscoggin County. The city has a population of 36,202. Located in south-western Maine, the city borders the coastal sideways of the Gulf of Maine and is south of Augusta, the state's capital and north of Portland, the cultural hub of Maine. It is one-half of the Lewiston-Auburn Metropolitan Statistical Area, commonly referred to as "L.A." or "L-A." Lewiston exerts a significant impact upon the diversity, religious variety, commerce, education, and economic power of Maine. It is known for a relatively low cost of living, substantial access to medical care, and an extremely low violent crime rate. While the dominant language spoken in the city is English, it is home to the largest French-speaking population in the state; the language is spoken by nearly 15% of locals.With a total of 2,441 business establishments, the city has a service-based tertiary economy worth approximately $4.1 billion in gross domestic product (GDP) output, primarily in the natural resources, mining, finance, insurance, real estate, rental/leasing, transportation, and utilities sectors. The influx of Somali and Bantu immigrants has created a secondary goods-manufacturing economy that supplements economic growth. The spread of globailzation and capital/labor flight has made the economy of Lewiston small-scale, underdeveloped, and growing. Although 63.3% of the population composes the labour force, 23.2% of the permanent population (excluding college students and those visiting) live in poverty with an average income of $37,500.
