Input-Output Analysis of the Kickapoo River Valley
MetadataShow full item record
The Kickapoo River Valley (KRV) is a 766 square mile watershed encompassing parts of four counties (Crawford, Monroe, Richland and Vernon). It is an economically lagging rural region, with adjusted gross income levels less than 55% of state average [WI Department of Revenue 1991]. The KRV is currently working on a comprehensive regional economic development program with the School of Natural Resources at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, U.W.-Extension and the State of Wisconsin. One of the goals of this program is to enhance the economic well-being of Valley residents. This analysis is intended to provide detailed economic information to aid local development professionals to achieve that goal
