Why This Indicator Matters
Definition and Source
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, Other Racial/Ethnic Identity alone, and White alone. Categories for Ethnicity data are: Hispanic or Latina/o/x (of any race) and White alone (not Latinx).
Metropolitan Chicago defined as Cook County and the five collar counties (DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will).
