Many who are familiar with Sawyer County census data are aware that a high percentage of Sawyer Country households — 17% —have incomes that identify them as being in poverty, according to federal guidelines.

Now a study released recently by United Way of Wisconsin using 2018 data has identified another group in Wisconsin, and in Sawyer County, that is struggling but is not considered poor by federal standards. This group is called the Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed group, or ALICE households.
