UW-La Crosse, in cooperation with State Bank Financial and the La Crosse Tribune, initiated a long-term study in early 2002 of our region's economic indicators. The research is ongoing and focuses on trends for a nine-county region that includes counties in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. This project is expected to continuously build a base of economic information and provide decision makers with valuable tools for strategic planning. The information will also provide a basis for comparison with other regions and a measure of our progress as a region. 

In addition to the open forum, findings are also summarized in a publication available on the State Bank Financial website:  https://www.statebankfinancial.bank/economic-indicator-reports.html. We have also provided links to the core economic indicators. Readers can use these links as needed for individual research projects.
