As with many college towns, the presence of a University stabilizes the local economy and is under-represented in its demographics with non-resident students and related services and amenities not included in population and economic reporting. For this reason, college towns typically enjoy a disproportionately higher level of economic performance and stability for the size of the city.
Macomb, Illinois is approximately 180 miles southwest of Chicago and about 75 miles equidistant from Springfield, Peoria and the Quad Cities. The city has a population of 18,267 (2017) additionally the 1,000-acre Western Illinois University campus including more than 60 buildings has a current enrollment of almost 8,000 students.
