Current Projects

The Population Research Center (PRC) can provide expertise in a variety of population-related projects dealing with estimates, analysis, and forecasts on a fee basis.

Many of the PRC's recent projects have been in the area of educational planning, providing school enrollment analysis and forecasts for K-12 school districts and for community colleges. PRC faculty have also provided estimates, population projections and analysis for service districts, and for special populations such as golf and athletic club memberships.  To see a few examples of the many projects completed for entities across the state, go to the PRC Publications site.  Take a look at the new Atlas of Oregon Lakes, currently being revised, updated and expanded, now available online.
