The pandemic's disproportionate impact on minority communities in Chicago has highlighted the focus on Healthy Chicago 2025 Priority Populations, including Black Chicagoans, Latinx Chicagoans, low-income Chicagoans, communities disproportionately burdened by pollution and disinvested and gentrifying communities.

The pandemic has highlighted the need of local data to curb the spread of this pandemic. Helping adversely-impacted communities recover is crucially dependent on collection and access to data at a local granularity.  COVID-19 data portals are numerous but vastly scattered, often precariously limited in the information offered and the capacity to offer associative analytics.

The PHAME center will evolve the Chicago Health Atlas not only to bring local COVID-19 data immediately accessible to the user but also to seamlessly provide associative analytics with housing, food access, environment, public safety, neighborhood and social, economic, neighborhood determinants of health beyond what is already available through the American Community Survey, the CDC’s 500 Cities and other social determinant datasets.This includes, but is not limited to, CDPH and IDPH data on COVID-19 as well as point data for mortality. The PHAME Center’s expansive data library will integrate with advanced analytics software and researcher expertise.
