Community Health Profiles

Chicago has 77 formally-designated community areas; Community Health Profiles, which are available for each, contain a mix of health status and health resource data. Each profile presents information for the specific community, and in some instances, comparable information for the city as a whole. In addition to a map that depicts the locations of health care facilities, each community profile includes:

  • Census statistics
  • Estimated primary care capacity and utilization
  • Health care resources
  • Hospital capacity and utilization data
  • Hospitalizations for ambulatory care sensitive conditions
  • Leading causes of death
  • Leading causes of hospitalization
  • Maternal and child health indicators
  • Where residents obtain hospital care

We strongly encourage you to review the Technical Notes to gain a more complete understanding of the approach used to collect and analyze the data presented and to understand how the terms have been defined. Without this understanding, the information presented may be misinterpreted. Some profiles have special notes that are explained in the Technical Notes. All profiles are in PDF format.
