Researching Wisconsin’s Labor Market

The Wisconsin Dept. of Workforce Development publishes Wisconsin County Profiles to provide a snapshot of the labor market for every Wisconsin county. Each profile includes analysis of the current and projected population dynamics, the effect on the labor force, county industries and employers, occupational patterns within industries, and average wages. Wisconsin County Profiles are available in the Wisconsin Digital Archives from 2005 to current which is the 2017 profiles. DWD also has additional information on their website about how the data was collected and the data sources for the County Workforce Profiles.

For more information about Wisconsin’s economy, visit DWD’s Wisconomy website. Labor Market Economists are available to answer questions related to analyzing and interpreting labor force and economic data.
