Between the Great Migration and Growing Exodus: The Future of Black Chicago? IRRPPUIC report
From the website: "Starting in 1980, Chicago’s African American population growth not only halted, but reversed. By 2016, the population of black Chicagoans had decreased by 350,000 from its peak in 1980. These population trends have attracted significant media attention and speculation about why black Chicagoans are leaving the city. Given these trends, IRRPP set out to analyze what the data on population in Chicago can tell us about black migration into and out of the city. In this report, we assess the historical context of shifts taking place over the past 100 years, provide a more detailed analysis of population change across Chicago neighborhoods from 1990 to 2016, and examine where Chicagoans who are leaving the city are going."

Commitment to Reducing Inequality Index - Oxfam
From the web site: "The Development Finance International Group (DFI) is a non-profit capacity-building, advocacy, advisory and research group that works with more than 50 governments and international organizations worldwide.

Oxfam is an international confederation working together with partners and local communities in more than 90 countries to end the injustices that cause poverty.

We believe inequality is far from inevitable. It is a policy choice and governments have considerable powers to reduce the gap between the rich and poor in their countries. We developed this index to measure and monitor government policy commitments to reducing inequality, but also to offer a robust, evidence-based alternative to other existing income and wealth measuring systems which are sorely lacking in data coverage and quality."
