Illinois is an important transportation hub; the Port of Chicago connects the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River via the Illinois River. Illinois is often viewed as a microcosm of the United States; an Associated Press analysis of 21 demographic factors found Illinois the "most average state," while Peoria has long been a proverbial social and cultural bellwether.
Nearly 66% of the population resides in the northeastern corner of the state, primarily within the city of Chicago and the surrounding metropolitan areas.With a population near 40,000 between 1300 and 1400 AD, the Mississippian city of Cahokia, in what is now southern Illinois, was the largest city within the future United States until it was surpassed by New York City between 1790 and 1800. About 2,000 Native American hunters and a small number of French villagers inhabited the Illinois area at the time of the American Revolution. American settlers began arriving from Kentucky in the 1810s; they achieved statehood in 1818. The future metropolis of Chicago was founded in the 1830s on the banks of the Chicago River, one of the only natural harbors on southern Lake Michigan. Railroads and John Deere's invention of the self-scouring steel plow made central Illinois' rich prairie into some of the world's most productive and valuable farmlands, attracting immigrant farmers from Germany and Sweden. Northern Illinois provided major support for Illinoisans Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant during the American Civil War. By 1900, the growth of industry in northern cities and coal mining in central and southern areas attracted immigrants from Eastern and Southern Europe, and made the state a major arsenal in both world wars. African-Americans migrating to Chicago from the rural South formed a large and important community, which created the city's famous jazz and blues cultures.
Governor Pat Quinn Pushing for Residents to Get Higher Education
The Illinois Board of higher Education encourages the locals to earn postsecondary credentials because 140,000 high-skilled recruitments go vacant in Illinois each year. The state governor Pat Quinn demands 60 percent of the population to acquire a post-secondary degree by the end of 2025. However, the state funding is still declining which leaves the university officials in a worry. The huge growth in post-secondary education after the World War II observed in the United States is now nowhere to be seen. Following World War, the United States saw massive growth in postsecondary education. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development has ranked U.S the lowest in the survey on students whose parents do not have a post-secondary degree and they still pursue higher education. According to the report, the U.S. holds 14th position in the world in the percentage of 25 to 34-year-olds having advanced education.
