State of the Region 2015

This seminal State of the Region highlights trends, connections, and indicators related to the people and the economy of our region, including migration, agriculture, business patents, philanthropic investments, and more. Findings are developed and illustrated through a rigorous data collection process undertaken over the past year by a project team at the Oregon Cascades West Council of Governments.

Our goals for the State of the Region 2015 were:

  1. To capture data related to our region, present it, and make it available in easy-to-use, scalable, and interactive formats. The data are not meant to be comprehensive, but rather to provide a snapshot and encourage future conversations.
  2. To build internal and external capacity in data collection, maintenance, and visualization.
  3. To provide decision-makers with data to help set the stage for policy and program decisions concerning our collective priorities, investments, and vision.
