Newsmakers: 2010 Census Changes in Wisconsin

The latest batch of 2010 Census data for Wisconsin showed Wisconsin’s Hispanic population grew by a 74% increase — or 140,000 more — over 10 years. By comparison, Wisconsin’s African-American population grew by 5.5% in the same period, or about 55,000. In a Newsmakers interview on March 28, UW-Madison Assistant Sociology Professor Katherine Curtis talked about that and other major changes since 2000, including the 12 northern Wisconsin counties where the housing vacancy rate was between 35% and 62%. She said data like this is important in planning and meeting the state’s future housing and education needs.
