New Map: Early Childhood Service Sites and Federal Poverty Levels by Census Tract
IECAM's Early Care and Education Services Map can now show 100% and 200% federal poverty levels (FPL) for children ages 0 through 5 by census tract. This new version reflects the most recent available data (2021 for service sites and 2020 for federal poverty levels).
Clicking on a census tract area will bring up a popup window with the following information:
- total population
- total children under age 6
- number of children under age 6 at or below the selected federal poverty level (100 or 200%)
- percent of children under age 6 at or below the selected federal poverty level (100 or 200%)
IECAM users can select different layers by opening the layer list box on the upper left hand side. The version below was created with 200% FPL by census tract automatically showing. For a version without FPL levels showing, uncheck the layers in the layer list box or visit this map page in our curated data, maps, and charts section. In addition, note that the version below includes an Illinois Birth to Five Council regions layer.
