Digging below the surface of Scott Walker's happy talk

Quoted in Growing Our Economy  (Scott Walker Office of the Governor)

Compared to a statewide rate of 42 percent
A report released Wednesday by the United Way of Wisconsin found that 41 percent or 86,855 of 211,842 Dane County households are unable to make ends meet or cover basic living expenses, including housing, child care, food, transportation and health care. This nearly matches the overall state number of 42 percent or 960,131 of 2.3 million households detailed in the United Way ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Study.  [emphasis added]
