The mission of PRC is to provide population data, information, research, and analysis for Oregon and its communities. Center staff engage in a variety of demographic activities, including the Oregon State Data Center, the Oregon Population Estimates Program, and a variety of commissioned population projects. PRC staff also teach in the Nohad A. Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning, supporting a graduate concentration in applied demography, and are developing a graduate certificate program in applied demography.
