you have to consider the sectin 8 rules and state assistance in places like wisconsin and iowa. as silly as it sounds on the surface, both of these states have lots of former chicago residence who received government assistance at one time or another. Milwaukee and Des Moines have a lot of Chicago transplants.
Yes, it is pretty sick. And when Chicago knocked down all their projects, those gangsters and section 8 types moved to the south burbs. So suburbs like Harvey, Chicago Heights, Ford Heights, Markham, etc. are gang ridden. Don't be fooled by the "suburb" label. There are very active gang members in quiet towns like Park Forest too. It's just in towns like Chicago Heights and Harvey the dope boys are actually on the block 24/7 taking turns doing shifts. The police seem to be uninterested for some odd reason...at least they are in those two towns.
About half way down the page, check out the crime index:
Most of the former project residents went to poor neigborhoods in Chicago not the suburbs. I live in Harvey and over half of the section 8 are from poor neigborhoods of Chicago not the projects. However it is true that Harvey and Chicago heights have the highest number of section 8 vouchers in the suburbs. Evanston have the highest when it comes to North suburbs.
