These are a quick “snapshot” of early childhood and demographic countywide data.
Each Illinois county (with the exception of Cook County) Snapshot is highlighted with the most recent demographic data overlaid with early childhood program location-based data (FY2010). Each Snapshot includes a brief description of a unique feature from the county.
For the City of Chicago, we encourage you to visit the Chapin Hall Web site, where you will find information on the conditions of children (birth to 5) in Chicago meant to serve as a community planning tool.
We hope you enjoy these Snapshots and encourage you to disseminate them as you see fit. They can be downloaded and printed at any time. The information on these Snapshots of Illinois Counties is meant to provide a starting place for you as you have conversations with your local and county partners.
