Mapping hardship along the CTA
The map divides the city into the 77 community areas. These areas are colored based on the hardship index. The greater the hardship index, the darker it appears on the map.
The station locations show green for stations in community areas where the median income is above the poverty line for a family of four ($23,018) or red if below this line.
There’s absolutely nothing surprising about this hardship index based on the CTA map, but it’s fascinating nonetheless. From $60,000 per capita income to $13,000 in one El stop.
