This report examines data from the Chicago vacant building website, of which the vacant building registry is a part, and compares those data with vacant property address data from the United States Postal Service (USPS) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  This report also looks at extent to which the change to the City of Chicago vacant building registration requirements affected registrations overall and the income and racial composition of the census tracts in which the properties are located.
