In the initial phase of the project, IECAM is not focusing on presenting data on child care use and availability in the City of Chicago. Data for the city as a whole will be presented where available. However, data will not be separated into the various community areas of the city. For detailed data on the City of Chicago, please see these additional Web sites.
