About the district
- See also: Waukesha School District, Wisconsin
Waukesha outperformed the rest of Wisconsin in terms of higher education achievement in 2010. The United States Census Bureau found that 33.8% of Waukesha residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 26.4% for Wisconsin as a whole. The median household income in Waukesha was $58,070 compared to $52,627 for the state of Wisconsin. The poverty rate in Waukesha was 10.4% compared to 12.5% for the entire state.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one- or two-tenths off from being exactly 100 percent. This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
