University of Wisconsin–Madison

Data Digest

The main purpose of the Data Digest is to provide comprehensive quantitative information on the major dimensions of the university, including students, faculty, staff, and budget. The Data Digest also provides official numbers. It is possible to measure many of the attributes of the university in a variety of different ways, depending on different definitions. However, the official numbers and definitions are often an important point of reference. The Data Digest is published annually, around March of each year.

We welcome suggestions and feedback on how the Data Digest can be improved. Please feel free to Contact Us with any suggestions, questions, or other feedback.
