2017 2nd Quarter Coincident Index by County

"A classical approach to surveying the current health of the economy in a county is to analyze the levels and trends based on a coincident economic index. The more holistic approach, used to create this index for Wisconsin counties, is to combine consistently available coincident  economic indicators. This quarterly index is based on county employment, total wages, and the county's unemployment rate."
