Note: These allocation rates are based on a special tabulation of the 1990 census files and reflect the "final" disposition of each census item or category. They cover the household population only. In the case of housing items, they refer to occupied units. For income, the allocation rates refer to the percent of people for whom a specified percentage of their income was allocated (e.g., greater than zero to 9%, 10-19%, etc.). The rates shown here may differ from rates shown in other tables of this report or in census publications because of differences in universe or category definitions (e.g., whether the universe is all people or just household members) and because of differences between final and preliminary rates.

MSA: Metropolitan Statistical Area. Large MSAs are those with 500,000 or more population.

a The worst 10 percent census tracts are the 10 percent with the highest overall rates of allocation among all tracts for the country as a whole. The universe here is those tracts that fall in Illinois.
