*+Test Fatality Rate (+TFR) = deaths/positive tests. Confirmed COVID-19 tests in Cook County as reported by the Coronavirus COVID-19 dashboard found on the Illinois Department of Public Health website. A positive test result is not the same as a case and does not necessarily mean illness or hospitalization, it simply means an infection was detected. PLEASE NOTE: A backlog of test results was released on Sept 4th. There is no indication of when these tests were performed, as such they’re all being attributed to a single day. Reporting f*ckups such as this should be ignored.

*Source Data & Editor’s Note

We compile our own dataset using the following sources: Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-TimesHomicide Watch Chicago (no longer updated), DNAInfo Chicago (out of business), Chicago Redeye Homicide Tracker (no longer updated), NBC5 Chicago, Chicago Tribune’s Shooting Tracker & Homicide Tracker, Cook County Medical Examiner, CPD’s Historical Data Set, City of Chicago Data Portal, Chicago Police Department Arrest Record Search and CPD CLEARMAP.

Community areas and neighborhoods are determined by the Chicago Tribune’s Boundaries App and/or Crimeisdown.com’s most excellent Incident Map.

Editor’s note: All murders are homicides, but not all homicides are murders. We count homicides, whereas the CPD counts murders. A homicide, or a non-fatal shooting, regardless of type or by whom, within the city limits of Chicago counts towards our total metric, including anything on the expressways. CPD-involved, ISP-involved and justifiable homicides all count. Reckless homicides may count if the Medical Examiner rules that the cause of death was a homicide. Suicides do not count. Additional definitions can be found on the Glossary page.
