CMAP has refreshed its Community Data Snapshot (CDS) library with updated and original data to help municipalities, researchers, and the public track progress and make informed decisions about their communities. These data-rich snapshots -- one for each of the region’s 284 municipalities, 77 Chicago Community Areas, and seven counties -- summarize demographics, housing, employment, transportation habits, and other key details using U.S. Census, CMAP research, and other data sources.
CMAP has added original data to the snapshots to help communities put their data in context with ON TO 2050 and its goals in areas such as walkability, park access, and transit availability. Each CDS now includes data on 13 local ON TO 2050 indicators that show how each community is doing compared to both the region today and the long-term regional targets outlined in the plan. These data points will continue to be updated each year to show progress toward the targets set in ON TO 2050.
