Crain’s Chicago Business

A deep dive into Chicago’s ever-changing economic and political landscape. 

Behind the Data: Evaluating Sentiment of Chicago Residents and Leaders 

At The Harris Poll, we regularly publish articles in partnership with Crain’s Chicago Business grounded in exclusive Harris Poll data. Our content explores Chicago residents’ and business leaders’ changing perceptions on the city’s trajectory.  

Topics cover the full experience of Chicago-life: entertainment options, urban development initiatives, economic inequity, COVID recovery, and more. Explore the full collection of articles below. 

“As market research experts, we know there’s a link between the viewpoints of the electorate and the success of government at all levels,” says Will Johnson, CEO of The Harris Poll. “We’re here to help Crain’s readers better see that connection or, as we may also see, that disconnection.”
