Community Data Snapshots Raw Data, November 2018 Release

Tables are in Comma Separated Value format and contain the raw data inputs to CMAP’s Community Data Snapshots (CDS) series. Data are compiled from numerous sources including the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2012-2016 American Community Survey (ACS), the Illinois Department of Employment Security, the Illinois Department of Revenue, and CMAP. Separate tables are provided for three geographic levels:

  • The seven counties in the CMAP region (with regional total)
  • The 284 municipalities in the CMAP region
  • The 77 Chicago Community Areas (CCA’s)

There is limited geographic availability (particularly at the CCA level) for some variables. Variable descriptions are available within the “CDS Field Descriptions” pdf.

Please note that the American Community Survey, which comprises much of the data within these tables, is a sample-based data product. Exercise caution when using data from low-population municipalities, as the margins of error are often large compared to the estimate.
