The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development has released new County Workforce Profiles, the latest available data at the local level through 2021, a valuable resource for all partners in labor, commerce and government, as well as the general public.
Every two years, DWD’s Office of Economic Advisors compiles and distills local data on all 72 counties. The snapshots have become an essential tool for economic development professionals, regional planners, researchers, business leaders, policymakers, students, and workers considering new employment opportunities.
The new profiles update the 2019 series and reveal the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the data and analysis set the stage for Wisconsin’s robust recovery, highlighting the resilience of the state’s workforce, the strength of its economy, and industries poised for the current job growth.
