What We Measure

When SCDC was formed, we promised to deliver results to Sauk County.

Net New Jobs

Net new jobs refers to increased positions after accounting for job losses due to closures or layoffs. It's a critical issue in economic development because a positive net new jobs figure indicates economic growth and improved employment opportunities.

Economic Impact

When examining our metrics for economic impact, we focus on these key indicators: net new job count, the increase in taxable revenue generated within Sauk County, and the number of newly formed or relocated established businesses in the area.

Inclusive Growth

Inclusive growth seeks fair economic progress, measured by the Gini coefficient (0-1 scale where lower values indicate more equality). We aim for a 0.35 score, emphasizing social cohesion, reduced inequality, and equal access to resources for a sustainable economy.
