Illinois (/ˌɪlɪˈnɔɪ/ (listen) IL-ih-NOY) is a state in the Midwestern region of the United States. It has the 5th largest Gross Domestic Product by state, is the
6th-most populous U.S. state and 25th-largest state in terms of land area. Illinois is often noted as a microcosm of the entire United States. With Chicago in the northeast, small industrial cities and great agricultural productivity in northern and central Illinois, and natural resources such as coal, timber, and petroleum in the south, Illinois has a diverse economic base, and is a major transportation hub. The Port of Chicago connects the state to other global ports around the world from the Great Lakes, via the Saint Lawrence Seaway, to the Atlantic Ocean; as well as the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River, via the Illinois Waterway on the Illinois River. The Mississippi River, the Ohio River, and the Wabash River form parts of the boundaries of Illinois. For decades, Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport has been ranked as one of the world’s busiest airports. Illinois has long had a reputation as a bellwether both in social and cultural terms and, through the 1980s, in politics.
Illinois is located in the Midwest Region of the United States and is one of the eight states and Canadian province in the bi-national Great Lakes region of North America.

The United States Census Bureau estimates that the population of Illinois was 12,741,080 in 2018, moving from the fifth-largest state to the sixth-largest state (losing out to Pennsylvania). Illinois’s population declined by 60,943 people from July 2017 to July 2018, making it the worst decline of any state in the U.S. in raw terms. Illinois is the most populous state in the Midwest region. Chicago, the third-most populous city in the United States, is the center of the Chicago metropolitan area or Chicagoland, as this area is nicknamed, comprises only 9% of the land area of the state, but contains 65% of the state’s residents.
According to the 2010 Census, the racial composition of the state was:
In the same year 15.8% of the total population was of Hispanic or Latino origin (they may be of any race).
The state’s most populous ethnic group, non-Hispanic white, has declined from 83.5% in 1970 to 63.3% in 2011. As of 2011, 49.4% of Illinois’s population younger than age 1 were minorities (Note: Children born to white Hispanics are counted as minority group).
At the 2007 estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau, there were 1,768,518 foreign-born inhabitants of the state or 13.8% of the population, with 48.4% from Latin America, 24.6% from Asia, 22.8% from Europe, 2.9% from Africa, 1.2% from Canada, and 0.2% from Oceania. Of the foreign-born population, 43.7% were naturalized U.S. citizens, and 56.3% were not U.S. citizens. In 2007, 6.9% of Illinois’s population was reported as being under age 5, 24.9% under age 18 and 12.1% were age 65 and over. Females made up approximately 50.7% of the population.
According to the 2007 estimates, 21.1% of the population had German ancestry, 13.3% had Irish ancestry, 8% had British ancestry, 7.9% had Polish ancestry, 6.4% had Italian ancestry, 4.6% listed themselves as American, 2.4% had Swedish ancestry, 2.2% had French ancestry, other than Basque, 1.6% had Dutch ancestry, and 1.4% had Norwegian ancestry. Illinois also has large numbers of African Americans and Latinos (mostly Mexicans and Puerto Ricans).
Chicago, along the shores of Lake Michigan, is the nation’s third largest city. In 2000, 23.3% of Illinois’s population lived in the city of Chicago, 43.3% in Cook County, and 65.6% in the counties of the Chicago metropolitan area: Will, DuPage, Kane, Lake, and McHenry counties, as well as Cook County. The remaining population lives in the smaller cities and rural areas that dot the state’s plains. As of 2000, the state’s center of population was at 41°16′42″N 88°22′49″W / 41.278216°N 88.380238°W / 41.278216; -88.380238, located in Grundy County, northeast of the village of Mazon.
Note: Births in table don’t add up, because Hispanics are counted both by their ethnicity and by their race, giving a higher overall number.
Chicago is the largest city in the state and the third-most populous city in the United States, with its 2010 population of 2,695,598. The U.S. Census Bureau currently lists seven other cities with populations of over 100,000 within Illinois. Based upon the Census Bureau’s official 2010 population: Aurora, a Chicago satellite town that eclipsed Rockford for the title of second-most populous city in Illinois; its 2010 population was 197,899. Rockford, at 152,871, is the third-largest city in the state, and is the largest city in the state not located within the Chicago suburbs. Joliet, located in metropolitan Chicago, is the fourth-largest city in the state, with a population of 147,433. Naperville, a suburb of Chicago, is fifth with 141,853. Naperville and Aurora share a boundary along Illinois Route 59. Springfield, the state’s capital, comes in as sixth-most populous with 117,352 residents. Peoria, which decades ago was the second-most populous city in the state, is seventh with 115,007. The eighth-largest and final city in the 100,000 club is Elgin, a northwest suburb of Chicago, with a 2010 population of 108,188.
The most populated city in the state south of Springfield is Belleville, with 44,478 people at the 2010 census. It is located in the Illinois portion of Greater St. Louis (often called the Metro-East area), which has a rapidly growing population of over 700,000 people.
Other major urban areas include the Champaign-Urbana Metropolitan Area, which has a combined population of almost 230,000 people, the Illinois portion of the Quad Cities area with about 215,000 people, and the Bloomington-Normal area with a combined population of over 165,000.
The official language of Illinois is English, although between 1923 and 1969, state law gave official status to “the American language”. Nearly 80% of people in Illinois speak English natively, and most of the rest speak it fluently as a second language. A number of dialects of American English are spoken, ranging from Inland Northern American English and African-American English around Chicago, to Midland American English in Central Illinois, to Southern American English in the far south.
Over 20% of Illinoians speak a language other than English at home, of which Spanish is by far the most widespread, at more than 12% of the total population. A sizeable number of Polish speakers is present in the Chicago Metropolitan Area.
Roman Catholics constitute the single largest religious denomination in Illinois; they are heavily concentrated in and around Chicago, and account for nearly 30% of the state’s population. However, taken together as a group, the various Protestant denominations comprise a greater percentage of the state’s population than do Catholics. In 2010 Catholics in Illinois numbered 3,648,907. The largest Protestant denominations were the United Methodist Church with 314,461, and the Southern Baptist Convention, with 283,519 members. Illinois has one of the largest concentrations of Missouri Synod Lutherans in the United States.
Illinois played an important role in the early Latter Day Saint movement, with Nauvoo, Illinois, becoming a gathering place for Mormons in the early 1840s. Nauvoo was the location of the succession crisis, which led to the separation of the Mormon movement into several Latter Day Saint sects. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the largest of the sects to emerge from the Mormon schism, has over 55,000 adherents in Illinois today.
A significant number of adherents of other Abrahamic faiths can be found in Illinois. Largely concentrated in the Chicago metropolitan area, followers of the Muslim, Bahá’í, and Jewish religions all call the state home. Muslims constituted the largest non-Christian group, with 359,264 adherents. Illinois has the largest concentration of Muslims by state in the country, with 2,800 Muslims per 100,000 citizens. The largest and oldest surviving Bahá’í House of Worship in the world is located in Wilmette, Illinois, and the oldest standing mosque in the U.S. is the Al-Sadiq Mosque of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, located in the Bronzeville neighborhood of Chicago. The Chicago area has a very large Jewish community, particularly in the suburbs of Skokie and Morton Grove. Current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is the Windy City’s first Jewish mayor.
Chicago is also home to a very large population of Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, and Buddhists.

AllCreditCarLoans was founded to help car buyers, even those who may have experienced credit difficulties in the past, get car loans bad credit pre-approval before going to a dealership. By separating the best bad credit auto loans from dealer price negotiations, we empower our clients to get the best deal possible.
The first step to apply for a car loan is to figure out how much you can afford to spend. If you have a vehicle to trade-in, you should determine its value so that you can factor that into your budget. A good resource for determining your cars market value is Kelley Blue Book.
Next, you'll want to consider how much money you have to use for a down payment. The more money you put down, the lower your monthly payment will be. If you are looking for no down payment auto loans, don't worry. We can still help you.
Finally, use our car loan calculator to estimate your monthly payment.
If you've chosen to buy a new car, you will most likely be purchasing the vehicle from a car dealer that accepts both good and bad credit. In order to get the best deal on a new car loan, you should research the base price, the cost of optional features and the average dealer fees in your area. To get the best deal possible, work with AllCreditCarLoans to get a pre-approved car loan so that you can negotiate like a cash buyer.
If you are looking to get the most value for your dollar, you will likely be better off looking for affordable used cars. That's because the prior owners have already absorbed the biggest portion of the vehicle's depreciation and you may have the option to buy directly from a private party, thus saving dealer fees. AllCreditCarLoans can help you with an auto loan for a private sale.
No matter what your credit situation is, AllCreditCarLoans will help you to find the best auto loans that are suited to your needs and budget.
We specialize in:
We can help with an auto loan for a first-time buyer, car loans for college students and we are proud to have arranged military car loans for service members and their spouses. We've even been able to help foreign nationals and others who do not qualify for a social security number to buy a car with their ITIN number.
We also specialize in sub-prime auto loans including after bankruptcy car loans and helping borrowers to obtain an auto loan with repossessions.
If you are looking for a auto title loan or car loan refinancing, we have programs that can help you as well.
AllCreditCarLoans works with the best buy here pay here carlots, used car dealership for bad credit, 2nd chance auto financing and other used car finance lenders to provide the best auto loan rates.
You are never alone in this process. Our reliable lender partners will guide you every step of the way -- from the time you begin processing your application, all the way to the day when you drive home your new car. Click the Apply Now button below to let us get started helping you today!
With the state of our world's economy, making monthly payments is getting harder and harder, especially in Illinois. United States job loss totals are higher than they have been in over thirty years. Americans are finding it tougher than ever to find steady employment. As a result, bankruptcy, foreclosure and repossessions are skyrocketing.
With many of us paying outrageous interest rates and high monthly payments, people are always looking for ways to lower their monthly bills. Vehicle Refinance is one of the quickest ways to do that.
The first step is to know the interest rate and the balance of your current vehicle loan. This can be obtained by calling, checking online, or faxing a request to your auto loan lender. Once you know what you owe, then you can determine how beneficial a car refinance might be. If you have had your auto loan for at least a year, a car loan refinance can almost always lower your monthly payment.
Click here to use our auto refinance calculator. You can enter your balance, term, and the interest rate to calculate what the payment will be. You can compare different scenarios to see if how much more you can save by adding a down payment.
Are you afraid to go shopping for a car because of the embarrassment you may face at the very real possibility of being turned down due to bad credit? If this is you, you're not alone. More than ever before, many are faced with bad credit right now, even in Illinois. What you need right now is a little "credit score infusion". Your score needs to be high enough so you can qualify for that auto loan you so desperately need.
I totally understand. In today's world an auto is a necessity. If you're lucky enough to still have a job right now, you've gotta have a car to get to work. If you've been laid off or just can't find a job, you need a car to go look for a job. You need to pick up your kids from daycare, you need to go to the grocery store. Whatever the issue is, you won't get far without wheels, so here are a few tips you can use to infuse your credit score immediately.
Different lenders have different criteria in relation to what they deem to be a "good" score. Really, what it all boils down to is "What interest rate am I going to have to pay?" You can still probably find a lender who will give you a car loan with a credit score of 580, but you're going to pay a really high interest rate for it. Get yourself bumped up to over 600 and better yet, over 620, and you have a few more options, but the rate you're going to pay is still not going to be pleasant. If you have scores in the range of 650 to 680, interest rates are going to be decent. Get yourself over 700 and you've got shopping power!
There are many scoring models out there, so don't be fooled. There can be a 50 to 100 point difference from one credit scoring agency to another, so your best bet is to stick with your FICO Score. This score is derived by Equifax and is the credit score that most lenders use, so you can be pretty confident with the score you receive.
You can get your FICO credit score for $9.95 if you sign up for their Score Watch program. This is the quickest way to get your score, and a great way to monitor how it's going to shoot up after I teach you a few tricks later in this article. If you do not wish to sign up for this free trial, then you can access all three of your credit reports for free, but you will then have to pay around $7 to $10 to purchase your score from each of the three major credit reporting agencies. You can only do this once a year for free.
Maybe you don't have enough income to qualify for that Ferrari you wanted, yet the loan officer will be able to advise you how much you can qualify for, as long as this is your only issue. If you're turned down because of your score, you can ask what is the minimum score they require to get approved. This will tell you whether or not you're going to need sub-prime car financing or not.
If you're not "bankable" just yet, don't worry. There are still auto lenders out there that will give you a loan, but the rate isn't going to be as pretty. I'd first ask the loan officer at the bank if they have anyone they'd recommend to refer you to. You can also do a search on the net for "bad credit auto loans" and you'll get a slew of links to click on. Some of these sites will search multiple lenders for you and could save you some time. If you like a more personal approach, you can look in your local yellow pages for "auto finance companies". Word of caution here though, finance companies usually carry much higher rates, so be sure to shop around.
Most people worry about whether or not they'll be able to make the monthly payments on a loan without taking into account the loan's term, total interest paid, and loan origination fees or pre-payment penalties.
Generally, the lowest rates on auto loans are available on short-term loans, from 12 to 36 months, which mean a large monthly payment but lower amounts of interest. Longer-term loans often come with higher interest rates. When you calculate the total price of your new vehicle, include the interest costs over the years. If it seems like too much for you, try to renegotiate the interest rate, offer a larger down payment, or shorten the term of the loan. Use our auto loan calculator to estimate your monthly payment.
