More About This Title Local Community Factbook


Just about any fact having to do with the life and history of the Chicago metropolitan area can be found in the latest edition of the phonebook-sized Fact Book, which contains histories of the city's 77 neighborhoods and all 53 suburbs -- including five towns in Northwest Indiana and Kenosha, Wisconsin -- with populations over 25,000. Using data from the 1960-1990 U.S. censuses, this book offers maps, population figures, demographic breakdowns, average incomes, elementary school test scores and other information, including average commuting time to work.
