Trend in Wisconsin needs to change in 2018

Wisconsin Family Council is a state partner with American Conservative Union’s Family Prosperity Initiative, a ground-breaking project that analyzes economic and social data related to family well-being and ranks all 50 states in an annual index. In 2017, Wisconsin ranked 17th, up a couple of spots from 2016. However, we ranked especially low in four areas: entrepreneurism, marriage, fertility and out-migration or the number and type of people leaving the state.  Julaine Appling says these measures need to improve in this new year.

“Low rankings in marriage and fertility are very disturbing,” says Julaine Appling, WFC president, “Our marriage rate has fallen 40% in 20 years. Married dad-and-mom families are our state’s best natural resource. A low fertility rate is disastrous. We’ve been low in this area for over 40 years, resulting in declining school enrollments and a depleted workforce. We need to change these trends in 2018.”
