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
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. 220.127.116.11 15:00, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
Census reference incorrect
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.18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:15, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
I removed the popular culture section
It was a load of pointless bollocks to be honest. There should probably be a mention of ER in passing in the article but aside from that there is no reason for it and it's just silly Wikipedia anno 2008 stuff. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 18:36, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
