Today I'd like to cover a serious topic. I know it's not something I usually do, but it's a problem I see every day, and a problem that cannot go on as it has for so long.

One in every 54.6 Americans is from Wisconsin. It's a growing problem. Since 1990, 471906 new people have been diagnosed as Wisconsinites, many of them at birth. Marquette County alone, for example, has experienced a 28.5% increase in the number of Wisconsinites present since 1990. All in all, only one county has experienced success in the reduction of Wisconsinites, Milwaukee County, which saw two percent of its citizens leave between 1990 and 2000.

Even Florence County, which in 1990 only held 5088 cases, saw a 10.8 percent increase in the decade.

Wisconsin Residency: It's a growing problem.
