Issues and Demographics

Wisconsin and County Profiles
  • Poverty and Food Insecurity

    A series of reports on poverty and food security are available that summarize recent trends in poverty and food security for each county with comparisons to the state. The reports include a discussion of implications for policy and programs. For viewing and printing, the reports are available at the Applied Population Laboratory.

  • Housing Profiles

    Housing profiles are available for all Wisconsin counties and the overall state. Housing affects where people live, their family budgets, the types of jobs available to them, who their friends and neighbors are, how they get to work, and the education their children receive, as well as other issues related to quality of life. For each county, the profiles provide the county demographics, housing affordability challenges and information on vacancy rates. You can view and print the county and state housing profiles at the Cooperative Extension Learning Store. There is no charge.
