Illinois Regional Profiles

When developing the 2022 update to the Illinois Housing Blueprint, IHDA developed a regional analysis for a broader understanding of the key demographic, economic and housing trends shaping the need for affordable housing across Illinois, as well as a detailed understanding of resource delivery across the state. For this analysis, Illinois was divided into 15 geographic regions at the county level with data reported at the county and regional levels. Extensive Regional Profiles have been developed to help guide future planning and housing policy efforts.
