Data & Policy

In 2011, The Agenda formed a research council and charged it with the task of documenting the history and current socioeconomic state of Puerto Rican Chicago sixty years after great migration in the 1950s. The report highlights key indicators and demographics in housing, economic development, education, health, women, youth, and culture. This report was made possible by the generous support of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), Institute for Research on the Race and Public Policy, the Chicago branch of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) and the Chicago Community Trust. Research was conducted out of the Nathalie P. Voorhees Center for Neighborhood and Community Improvement at UIC by principal investigators Dr. Ivis Garcia Zambrana and Dr. Ralph Cintron.
