Metropolitan Chicago defined as Cook County and the five collar counties (DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will).

AIAN = American Indian and Alaska Native

"*" indicates that estimates did not meet standards of reliability.

In keeping with how the Census Bureau counts children in its poverty estimates, the following groups have been excluded from this data analysis: (1) children living in group quarters and (2) children under the age of 15 who are unrelated to the householder.

Racial groups and ethnic groups should be considered separately when making comparisons. For the purposes of this information, racial groups are AIAN, Asian or Pacific Islander, black, multiracial, other, and white, while ethnic groups are Latinx and not Latinx.
