A First for Oregon
The Ford Family Foundation has a long history of investing in high-quality data to support local decision-making in rural communities. We created our annual indicator report, Oregon by the Numbers, with this purpose in mind.
Our Oregon Voices survey continues this tradition of representing rural Oregonians by ensuring every one of Oregon’s 36 counties has shareable results, regardless of their population size.
In addition, Oregon Voices focuses on people’s lived experiences across the state – a first for Oregon.
We hope the data will set the table for conversations in backyards, town halls, schools, workplaces, county fairs and in our State Capitol. We hope the voices of Oregonians shape the places we’re proud to call home.
