This study compares health and water-related conditions in Little Village to the Near North Side, and to Chicago city-wide. Chicago neighborhood data is reported by “community area”: 77 areas with defined boundaries that can include one or more neighborhoods. Little Village is within the South Lawndale community area. After reviewing health and water data all 77 community areas, the Near North Side community area was selected for comparison to South Lawndale, to illustrate the stark differences that exist between Chicago’s neighborhoods.
