Unlike Its Highway Counterpart, Federal Labor Agency Officials Recognize Milwaukee, Area Economic Distress

I had noted yesterday that for reasons know only to people at the Federal Highway Administration, its data indicated that there was no poverty in Southeastern Wisconsin, and since such numbers are in the process for determining where stimulus dollars are headed, the bad data were not helping get money into the Milwaukee area's economically-troubled communities.

A commenter on that blog posting copied two US Department of Labor sites with more accurate data, so I am posting them here - -
