New Arrivals Data Dashboard

Intake and Operations Data

In June 2023, the Mayor’s Office began hosting a weekly briefing for Alders to summarize ongoing advocacy efforts and data tracked. In the interest of transparency, CIRR has compiled this information for the public. CIRR does not track or maintain the raw data — we are simply presenting what has been shared with us by the Mayor’s Office.

To Date Movement Data

Below, see data on the TOTAL (1) number of new arrivals (tracked) that have come to Chicago, (2) number of new arrivals who have been placed in shelter through 311, and (3) number of exits from the shelter system. Each column refers to the date the Committee on Immigrant and Refugee Rights received the data set.

Last 7 Days Movement Data

Below, see data on what’s happened over the last seven days, including (1) how many buses have arrived, (2) how many new arrivals were placed in shelters, and (3) how many minors are currently in shelters or staging areas. Each column refers to the date the Committee on Immigrant and Refugee Rights received the data set.

Please note, the Committee has detected potential data errors with the rows titled ‘Single Men,’ ‘Single Women,’ and ‘Families (individuals in a family unit).’

Shelters / Staging Areas / Landing Zone

Below, see data on the number of new arrivals at each staging area and shelters.

For the data set, each column refers to the date the Committee on Immigrant and Refugee Rights received the data set. The first chart maps the number of new arrivals at various staging areas over time. The second chart maps the number of new arrivals at various shelters over time. The map plots the City of Chicago’s New Arrival Shelters.

Country of Origin

Below, see data on new arrivals’ countries of origin.

The first dataset tracks the cumulative number of new arrivals, divided by country of origin. Each cell specifies the total number of new arrivals that have come from one country. Each column refers to the date the Committee on Immigrant and Refugee Rights received the data set.

The second dataset tracks the weekly number of new arrivals requesting shelter by country of origin. Each cell specifies the number of new arrivals from a specific country who have requested shelter over the last 7 days. Each column refers to the day the Committee on Immigrant and Refugee Rights received the data set.

City of Chicago New Arrivals Information

Soon after we released this dashboard, the Mayor’s Office created its own New Arrivals Dashboard. CIRR hopes their page will include visualizations of anonymized and disaggregated data directly from their official intake and tracking management databases in the near future.
