Peer City Identification Tool

The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago Community Development and Policy Studies division developed the Peer City Identification Tool to compare and visualize trends or challenges among a city’s peers, which can give needed context to “policymakers and practitioners.” The tool draws from city-level indicators from the American Community Survey and historical Decennial Census records. After clicking a city on the map, charts show similar cities in different categories and their data such as population, unemployment, homeownership, median family income, poverty, and dissimilarity indexes.

Text adapted from the tool’s About page.
