Population Shifts around Chicagoland


The increase in educational attainment and income in Chicago is not solely due to out-migration in the poorer neighborhoods on the Far South Side, but also the influx of a highly educated and skilled workforce into Core and Northern neighborhoods. This inflow has fed the multifamily growth throughout these areas and is likely to increase as more corporations move into downtown Chicago.
