Surveys for Region 2

Due Nov. 16, 2018

Baker, Gilliam, Grant, Lane, Malheur, Morrow, Sherman, Umatilla, Union, Wallowa, and Wheeler Counties

The Population Research Center is collecting information about counties and cities in Region 2 to help with the development of the 2019-2069 population forecasts.  

There are two survey forms in which the information we would like to gather from local jurisdictions should be entered. You can review the information submitted for your jurisdiction during the last round of forecasts by going to the PSU web site and then selecting the report for your county. Survey responses are in Appendix A of each report. For Lane County and it's cities go to this page of the web site.

The surveys are available as on-line forms:

General Survey
Housing Development Survey

or the forms can downloaded as pdf or Microsoft Word and Excel files: 

General Survey (Word version)
General Survey (.pdf fillable form)
General Survey with sample data (.pdf)  (An example of the types of information you could include about your jurisdiction.)

Housing Development Survey (.pdf fillable form)
Housing Development Survey (Excel version)

The information you provide through these surveys will supplement our forecast methodology. If you do not have some of the information to report, it's okay to leave the corresponding answer space blank. Also, please provide your jurisdiction’s most recent Comprehensive Plan and any other planning documents and studies you think may help to make the forecasts more accurate.

Please complete the on-line surveys or return the completed pdf, Word or Excel surveys and information by Nov. 16, 2018 by email to
