The term was popularized by the Chicago Tribune. The first usage came on July 27, 1926 (page 1) with the headline: "Chicagoland's Shrines: A Tour of Discoveries" by reporter James O'Donnell Bennett. He claimed that Chicagoland comprised everything in a 200 mile radius in every direction and reported on many different places in the area. The Tribune was the dominant newspaper in a vast area stretching to the west of the city, and that hinterland was closely tied to the metropolis by rail lines and commercial links.[1] The Chicago Tribune is a major daily newspaper based in Chicago, Illinois. ...

The Chicago-Naperville-Michigan City Consolidated Statistical Area (often shortened to "Chicago CSA") had a population of 9,312,554, according to the most recent census in 2000. Based upon county estimates released in March 2006 from the Census Bureau, the population by 2005 had increased to 9,661,840[1]. The metro area comprises eight Illinois counties (Cook, DuPage, Lake, Will, Kane, McHenry, Kankakee, and Kendall), the five Northwest Indiana counties (Lake, Porter, Jasper, Newton, and LaPorte), and one Wisconsin county (Kenosha County). Greater Chicago is the third largest urban center in the United States, and 1 in 30 Americans calls it home. Chicagoland runs together with Milwaukee and Racine in Wisconsin, creating a megalopolis region, gradually spreading toward nearby urban centers like Rockford, South Bend, and Benton Harbor.

The suburbs, surrounded by easily annexed flat ground, have been expanding at a tremendous rate since the early 1960s. Naperville is noteworthy for being one of only a few boomburbs outside the Sunbelt, West Coast and Mountain States regions, and exurban Kendall County ranked as the third fastest-growing county in the United States with a population greater than 10,000 between 2004 and 2005.[2] Dr. Seuss Jean Shepherd Ringo Starr John Steinbeck Gloria Steinem Tom Stoppard Hunter S.

Settlement patterns in Chicagoland tend to follow those in the city proper: the northern suburbs along the shore of Lake Michigan are comparatively affluent, while the southern suburbs (sometimes known as Chicago Southland) are less so, with lower median incomes and a lower cost of living. However, there is a major exception to this. While Chicago's west side is among the poorer sections of the city, the western and northwestern suburbs contain many affluent areas. According to the 2000 Census, DuPage County had the highest median household income of any county in the Midwest. The county's largest city, Naperville, had the lowest poverty rate of any U.S. city with a population greater than 100,000. Several DuPage County municipalities have median home prices significantly higher than that of Chicagoland as a whole: Elmhurst $587,165, Hinsdale $1,274,558, Oak Brook $1,160,724, Glen Ellyn $579,954, Wheaton $427,428.10, Clarendon Hills $718,453 and Burr Ridge $913,579. Some "inner-ring" western suburbs in Cook County (Zone 3 on the Chicagoland Radius Map), such as Maywood and Cicero, are characterized by low income levels, however.

According to the 2000 US Census, poverty rates of the largest counties from least poverty to most are as follows: Dupage 5.90%, Grundy 6.10%, Will 6.70%, Lake 6.90%, Kane 7.40%, Cook 14.50%.


In an in-depth historical analysis, Keating (2004, 2005) examined the origins of 233 settlements that by 1900 had become suburbs or city neighborhoods of Chicagoland. The settlements began as farm centers (41%), industrial towns (30%), residential railroad suburbs (15%), and recreational/institutional centers (13%). Although relations between the different settlement types were at times contentious, there also was cooperation in such undertakings as the construction of high schools.


Usage

The term Chicagoland correctly stands alone as a description of Chicago and the surrounding counties. It should not be used with redundant terms like "the Chicagoland area," "metro Chicagoland" or even "the greater metropolitan Chicagoland area." The term is often used by advertisers ("See your Chicagoland Chevy dealer") or by weathercasters ("A major snowstorm is expected in Chicagoland"). The Chicago Tribune uses the name CLTV for their 24-hour cable news channel, official name Chicagoland Television. With out combination of a second name or term, it is fair use for any one to add the term "Chicagoland". Chicago Land Television, better known as CLTV, is a Chicago cable news station based out of Oak Brook, IL. One of its most well-known programs in and around Chicago is Sports Page, a nightly sports call-in show similar to many radio shows. ...

Census Bureau population statistics

The Chicago Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) was originally designated by the United States Census Bureau in 1950 and consisted of the Illinois counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, and Will along with Lake County in Indiana. As surrounding counties saw an increase in their population densities and the number of their residents employed within Cook County, they met Census criteria to be added to the MSA. The Metropolitan Statistical Area is currently named Chicago-Naperville-Joliet, IL-IN-WI. The addition of Kankakee County, Illinois and LaPorte County, Indiana to the metropolitan area forms the census designated Combined Statistical Area named Chicago-Naperville-Michigan City, IL-IN-WI which has a July 1, 2005 population estimate of 9,661,840.

Area codes

From 1947 until 1988, the Chicago metro area was served by a single area code, 312. In 1988 the 708 area code was introduced and the 312 area code became exclusive to the city of Chicago. The North American Numbering Plan (NANP) is an integrated telephone numbering plan of 24 countries and territories: the United States and its territories, Canada, Bermuda, and 16 Caribbean nations. ...


It became common to call suburbanites "708'ers", in reference to their area code.


The 708 area code was painfully inadequate from the beginning; it was partitioned in 1996 into 3 area codes (630, 708, and 847). As of 2006, the 847 area code has been supplemented with an overlay area code (224).


Plans are in place for overlay codes for all area codes serving the city and suburbs.


At the same time that the 708 area code was in trouble, the 312 area code in Chicago was also exhausting its supply of available numbers. As a result, the city was divided into two area codes, 312 and 773. Rather than divide the city by a north/south area code, the central business district (the "Loop") retained the 312 area code, while the remainder of the city took the new 773 code.

  • 312 Chicago - City(The Loop and central neighborhoods, e.g. the Near North Side)
  • 773 Chicago - City (Everywhere else within the city limits, excluding central area)
  • 847 (North and Northwest Suburbs)
  • 708 (Near West and South Suburbs)
  • 630 (Western Suburbs)
  • 224 (Overlay area code for 847)
  • 815 (far northwest and some south suburbs, Joliet)
  • 219 (Northwest Indiana)
  • 574 (North-central Indiana)
  • 262 (Southeast Wisconsin)
