Yompton is a slang term for the Northeast, Ohio city of Youngstown. Youngstown is located in Mahoning County, Ohio. Yompton is a compound of the city of Compton, California, and Youngstown, Ohio. Compton is a well known area riddled with high crime rates, as is Youngstown. Yompton is used in an attempt to relate Youngstown with Compton so that others unfamiliar with the city will become somewhat aware of its crime, giving them a comparison to Compton. Yompton is often misspelled as Yumpton, which is irrelevant to the actual meaning. Bordering townships and cities include Boardman, Canfield, Poland, Liberty, Hubbard, and Girard. These cites/townships have relatively lower crime rates than that of "Yompton".
Youngstown State University is located on the Northside of Yompton.
