Chicago, IL

Chicago is located on the shores of Lake Michigan. It is the most populous city in Illinois and the third most populous city in the United States. The city of Chicago is renowned for its bold architecture, its skyline punctuated by skyscrapers such as the iconic John Hancock Center, museums, including the Art Institute of Chicago.

Chicago was incorporated as a city in 1837 near a portage between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watershed and grew rapidly in the mid-nineteenth century. The city’s unique culture arises from its being a melting pot, with nearly even percentages of European Americans, African Americans, and Latinos as well as sizable populations of Asians.

Chicago is an international hub for finance, commerce, technology, industry, transportation, and telecommunications.

According to the US Census Bureau data, the median income for a household in Chicago in 2013 – 2017 was $52, 497 and per capita income was $32,560. Below the poverty line were 20.6% of the population.

According to Federal Reserve, Chicago was ranked 12th in the top cities with the most credit card debt in 2017 with $6,649 as the average credit card balance.
