A Community Assessment for the Fox Cities of Wisconsin


Welcome to the 2011 LIFE Study!


Purpose and Opportunity

The purpose of the Leading Indicators for Excellence (LIFE) Study is to develop a clear understanding of the overall quality of life in the Fox Cities by taking an in-depth look at 10 key indicators. LIFE Studies also were conducted separately in Brown County and Southern Winnebago County, and a report compiled to include data from the entire region.

We intend for many groups to use these findings: from businesses recruiting employees, to nonprofit agencies planning services, to local government deciding on resource allocation, to coalitions addressing an area of need, to the general public increasing awareness of community strengths and challenges.

This report provides information, but not solutions. Its purpose is to spark regional leaders and citizens to action based on an accurate understanding of current community conditions and trends.
