Chicago Youth Population Chart

By Robert Johnson

We were not able to obtain youth population data for each Chicago Police District in time for the publication of this report.  We believe that youth living in certain Chicago communities are disproportionately impacted by the police and criminal/delinquency court systems.  We hope to obtain per-district youth population data in order to create an index that describes the level of policing per capita in various Chicago neighborhoods.

The following table is provided as a reference for people interested in exploring how many youth are potentially affected by the policing practices in various districts.  Note that several communities are served by more than one police district, and most police districts cover more than one community area.
