This overview presents findings from the Chicago Panel Study, a follow up to the Urban Institutes five-site HOPE VI Panel Study, to assess how the residents are faring as the Plan for Transformation progresses.

Regardless of where they have moved, most families in our study are living in considerably better circumstances. However, the study also highlights the serious challenges that remain, most significantly, residents extremely poor health and persistently low rates of employment.
