Oregon Population Forecast Program Regional Meetings

The success of the forecast program depends on active participation from local governments and members of the community. The Oregon Population Forecast Program held its first public meetings for Region #1 (Central and Southern Oregon) in September 2014. Among other topics, we discussed:

  • The forecast process;
  • Demographic changes and trends; 
  • Your input about the area;
  • Forecast methodology and the rationale for forecast assumptions, and
  • Your questions about forecasts.
