While the total population of the five collar counties grew 47 percent between 1980 and 2000, the number of Latinos in the area rose more than 300 percent. Some are attributing at least part of the Democratic Party’s gains to the surge.


Note: Includes population figures for DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will counties.
