2021 LIFE Study
As a successor to the 2011 and 2016 LIFE (Leading Indicators for Excellence) Study reports, the 2021 LIFE Study is a continuation of a concerted effort to build a base of knowledge about our community and measure progress over time so that we as a community can fill gaps, find solutions, and build on successes.
The purpose of the 2021 LIFE Study is to evaluate the community from a variety of angles through both public perception and evidence-based research -- then to align and allocate resources to better the community and achieve greater impact. Input, based on personal experiences and perspectives on life here in Brown County, is invaluable to this process.

The LIFE Study Process
The Strategic Research Institute is conducting the survey of community members and leaders, and -- paired with a deeper dive into data surrounding 10 aspects of the quality of life in Brown County and community conversations with stakeholders on these issues -- a 2021 report will be shared communitywide.
Evaluating the community from a variety of angles through both public perception and evidence-based research provides a better understanding of the community's strengths and areas that may need improvement.
