MADISON - The Department of Workforce Development (DWD) announced the release of updated workforce profiles for each of Wisconsin's 72 counties today. The 2019 County Workforce Profiles are publications that provide workforce population and demographics, economic outlook, employment and wage data, and industry and occupational projections by county written by DWD's regional economists.
"DWD's staff of economists work with state and local partners to provide analysis and insights into pressing workforce development challenges," Secretary Caleb Frostman said. "The County Workforce Profiles are another tool we provide to our partners to help them make informed decisions on policy, economic outreach, workforce development, and county planning."
The County Workforce Profiles provide snapshots of the labor market for every Wisconsin county using the most recently available data. DWD's Office of Economic Advisors update the profiles every two years. New in 2019 is an analysis of the automation of occupations and how counties may see an impact.
