To help identify the economic assets of central city neighborhoods and to further employment opportunities for city residents the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Employment and Training Institute prepared summary data on the workforce residing in and employed in each census tract, along with state-of-the-art purchasing power estimates of consumer expenditures and retail sales leakage/surplus by neighborhood. The ETI drill downs were designed to help determine the diversity of the workforce and to further economic development for underserved communities and for underutilized minority populations. Samples of ETI research reports using the drill downs are archived in the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Digital Commons collection.
