State of the Region

The State of the Region project highlights trends, connections, and indicators related to the people and the economy of the Benton, Lincoln, and Linn County region. This includes 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.
