The Institute for Research on Poverty (IRP) has both a national and a Wisconsin presence. Among our Wisconsin-focused efforts are:
- a long history of research for the Bureau of Child Support in the Department of Children and Families;
- an integrated data system harmonizing administrative data from five state agencies;
- the DreamUp Wisconsin project that identifies and implements policies to raise net income by 10 percent for 10,000 Dane County middle-class households; and
- the Wisconsin Poverty Project, which produces an annual assessment of poverty throughout Wisconsin.
IRP also has cooperative research agreements with several Wisconsin state agencies, and IRP Affiliates are involved in a broad array of state and local evaluations and technical assistance efforts.
In addition to linking to key Wisconsin projects, this page contains links to all of IRP’s Wisconsin-focused products and to other resources on poverty in Wisconsin.
