Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

65 ILCS 5/1-7-2

    (65 ILCS 5/1-7-2) (from Ch. 24, par. 1-7-2)
    Sec. 1-7-2. Whenever in this Code any provision thereof is based upon the number of inhabitants, the number of inhabitants of the municipality shall be determined by reference to the latest census taken by authority of the United States or this state, or of that municipality. It is the duty of the Secretary of State, upon the publication of any state or United States census or the certification of any municipal census referenced under Section 1-7-1, to certify to each municipality the number of inhabitants, as shown by that census. In the event that a partial census is conducted pursuant to Section 1-7-1, the Secretary of State shall certify the total number of inhabitants of the municipality as the number reflected by the last complete census of the municipality adjusted by the net increase or decrease reflected by the partial census. And the several courts in this state shall take judicial notice of the population of any municipality, as the population appears from the latest federal, state, or municipal census so taken, certified, and adjusted.
