Untitled[edit]

Wondering how to edit this U.S. County Entry?
The WikiProject U.S. Counties standards might help.

Map request[edit]

It would be neat to have a map showing the interior arrangement of municipalities inside the county. -- Beland 06:59, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

The article now includes a township map. I'll see about a municipality map. Omnedon (talk) 23:51, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
The article could also use a map of Commissioner districts, based on this (not-free) map: http://www.cookcountygov.com/taxonomy2/Geographic%20Information%20Systems/Downloads/Cook_Comdist_2011.pdf

Question[edit]

Article states Cook county is 19th largest government in US. Is this by pop or by revenue?

If by population it does not tally with other lists and 5.2M would put it between Wisconsin and Minnesota meaning 20 states and LA county are larger.

If by revenue we need a reference.

As a limey I do not want to blunder in and edit this in case I'm wrong. 81.107.45.169 15:00, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Corruption?[edit]

Not a single mention of the high amount of corruption in Cook County? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.248.38.76 (talk) 22:26, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Age Pyramid[edit]

The age pyramid under the Demographics section needs to be resized or converted from svg. The numbers on the graph are all mushed together. --Pyho T / C 03:42, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Census reference incorrect[edit]

The article references the 2008 Census. There is no 2008 Census. They are only done every 10 years, with 2000 being the most recent available. Likely, the number references the Census Bureau's estimate for 2008, or a similar measure. Didn't want to change it, not knowing what the correct reference would be or where the number came from.68.100.211.238 (talk) 22:15, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Updated population figures for the townships, based on the 2010 census. Listmeister (talk) 14:39, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

incorporated cities[edit]

the article states that the number of incorporated cities in cook county is 130 but this is unsourced. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.62.20.190 (talk) 06:47, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
