This document provides background and a summary of results on the Communities United Youth Survey, which aimed to gather information and insights about housing and economic challenges facing youth, their families, and their neighborhoods during the COVID‐19 pandemic in the five City of Chicago Community Areas where CU focuses its organizing efforts. This information was used to guide the development of data indicators that document neighborhood conditions, amplify youth lived experiences, and inform community‐led conversations to define strategies to address COVID‐19 challenges and inequities.
