The University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives continues to pursue foundational work to develop the data resources for measuring the cooperative economy on an ongoing basis. A national cooperative census that can be efficiently and regularly updated is the first step to this effort.
A”first draft” of a cooperative census based on a national business data set has been completed, and drives the tables and maps on this website. Further development and refinement of the data set is continuing, and updated reporting will follow.
