About 3.8% of families and 5.8% of the population were below the poverty line, including 7.8% of those under age 18 and none of those age 65 or over.

Economy

The village is currently in the midst of a housing boom. The new homes in the community are larger and more expensive than what had been previously developed. A requirement of all new homes to be built on at least .75 Acres will assure that all future development will be upscale in nature.

A plan is in the works by the Ho-Chunk Indian Nation of Wisconsin to create a reservation within the village. The tribe has been purchasing land in the village near Illinois Route 394, and hopes to place the land into a trust. The ultimate goal of the tribe is to create a megaresort complete with casino gambling.[3]

In 2011, a large big box shopping center will be built on the corner of Glenwood Dyer Rd and Torrence Ave. Anchors include Target, Borders, Whole Foods, Kohl's, and T.J.Maxx along with Burger King and several restaurants.

Government

Lynwood is in Illinois' 2nd congressional district.
