Young Children in Chicago
This information on the conditions of children ages 0-5 in Chicago communities is meant to serve as a planning tool for community organizations, churches, businesses, schools, foundations, as well as city and state officials trying to address the needs of children in Chicago.
The information presented here has been prepared, under contract with the Chicago Department of Children and Youth Services, with data collected from a wide range of government sources. Please consult Understanding the Data to learn more about the sources of data and the assumptions behind the data.
