Definition and Source



Child population ages 0 to 19 by Race-Ethnicity.

Because of the way the U.S. Census Bureau collects and disseminates Race-Ethnicity data for children, the following categories should be considered Race data: American Indian and Alaska Native alone, Asian alone, Black alone, Two or More Races alone, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone, and White alone. Categories for Ethnicity data are: Hispanic or Latina/o/x (of any race). City of Chicago is defined as Cook County and the five collar counties (DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will). 

Data Source

U.S. Census Bureau, Population Estimates Program, here.

Data for 2020 and 2021 are Vintage 2021 estimates. Data for 2010 through 2019 are Vintage 2020 population estimates. Each year the U.S. Census Bureau revises estimates back to the most recent Census. Therefore, data presented here may differ from previously published estimates. Figures for 2000 and 2010 represented revised population estimates for July 1, 2000 and July 1, 2010 - not actual Census counts from April 1, 2000 and April 1, 2010.
