DWD Releases New Unemployment Insurance Claims by County Dashboard

MADISON – The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) today announced its release of an expanded Unemployment Insurance (UI) statistics dashboard. The expanded dashboard now includes an interactive map with information on UI claims filed by county.

"Today's expanded UI dashboard release is yet another important step in our ongoing modernization efforts and demonstrates DWD's continued commitment to transparency, accountability, and customer service," DWD Secretary Amy Pechacek said.

Initially released in May 2022, the UI statistics dashboard provides information on UI claims filed, benefits paid, adjudication, appeals, and help center call metrics. Metrics are updated each Thursday, making up-to-date current and historical UI data available to the public.

By adding the county claims feature to the existing UI statistics dashboard, DWD aims to empower decisionmakers with the data they need to better analyze trends and develop policies tailored to the unique needs of communities across Wisconsin.

Key features of the expanded dashboard include the following measures for both initial claims and weekly claims, summarized by county:
