The Commercial Association of REALTORS along with the Greater Milwaukee Association of REALTORS supported the Wisconsin Policy Forum’s Metro Milwaukee Innovation DataTool providing an easily accessed snapshot of how the area is doing on a group of key economic indicators.
The data used in this year’s Municipal DataTool come from reports compiled by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue for 2020 and 2021. It is grouped into the following areas: property taxes, spending, debt, fund balances, shared revenue (a key form of state aid) and property values, and
income and population. The latest eight years of data are provided, enabling users to see trends over time.
For each subject, users may choose data from as many as 10 municipalities to compare, as well as compare across all municipalities in a county.
The tool also includes a “Key Findings” section that summarizes major statewide trends.
