For more than 17 years we have provided the Ukrainian community of Greater Chicago and other states with comprehensive, invaluable information about important political, economical and cultural events around the world.
During this time our readership has included a wide audience of readers of all ages, with differing interests and fields of employment.
The Ukrainian community is rapidly growing and developing. Our community is an ideal market for new products and services.
New arrivals to the USA are building new lives here from scratch. Areas of critical need include banks, real estate and mortgage services, attorneys and doctors, auto dealers and insurance agents, grocery and food services, shopping locations, and furniture stores. These potential customers need banks to invest their money, and banks or other companies to transfer the money home. They need help in identifying resources for daily activities.
The history of the Ukrainian emigration to America has extended for over 300 years. Ukrainian community in the United States is one of the largest and has a wide and well organized infrastructure of public and financial institutions.
Here is a snapshot of our Ukrainian reader:
Ukrainians represent 0.5% of the population of the United States.
Nearly 70% of the Ukrainian population in America has a higher education level than the general population.
34% own their own businesses.
Almost 90% of American Ukrainians live in cities and 21% of them work for trading or financial companies.
In addition 13% of our readers are in the US armed forces, 12% work in education, 11, and 5% - for organizations of health care. And the Ukrainian language is taught in 28 colleges and universities in America today.
Nearly 400,000 Ukrainians live in Greater Chicago today. During the last 10 years the size of this community has tripled with new arrivals from Ukraine as well as from other areas of U.S. The role of Ukrainian businesses continues to increase and positively impact Greater Chicago.
