The Social IMPACT Research Center conducts applied research in the form of evaluations, data services, and studies for nonprofits, advocacy groups, foundations, governments, coalitions, and the media to help them inform and improve their work. IMPACT also regularly reports on key trends related to poverty so that decision makers better understand how to address it through programs and public policy.
We regularly work with media to provide data and commentary on poverty and income in Illinois. We are happy to work with you to pull the most accurate data points for your story.
