Some Sources of Wisconsin Demographic Data

I recently saw an animation of U.S. demographic data scaled down to 100 people. It really just depicts percentages in whole numbers, but the visual comparisons are informative.

Wouldn't a Wisconsin version be interesting? I haven't had time to design one, but these are some Wisconsin population estimates by county from the U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey (ACS):

American FactFinder has many, many more files of ACS information, although not all data is available for all Wisconsin counties for all years. Oh, and if you find an "If Wisconsin Were 100 People" video, let me know!
