Wisconsin Coronavirus Economic Impact Map

Economic Impact Key


The map above shows which areas in Wisconsin are expected to suffer the greatest economic damage from COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus. Economic damage includes both unemployment and loss of business. These estimates are based on the number of people employed in each industry by area. Areas in the darkest red may see 20% or more of the workforce newly unemployed.

Overall, the economic impact to Wisconsin is expected to be extremely severe, with 9.8% of jobs at risk. On a national per-capita basis, there are 3 states in worse condition and 48 states in better condition. Among other states classified as large by population, 1 are projected to have more economic damage, and 11 to have less economic damage.

Estimates are based on industries most impacted by the virus and by recessions in general. This map is based on strong statistical evidence, but please keep in mind these are only estimates. Changes will be included as more data becomes available. Estimates are generally conservative: some areas will have higher-than-projected unemployment.
