Public Meetings and Participation

The Population Research Center (PRC) at Portland State University  holds a series of public meetings relating to the Oregon Population Forecast Program each Fall and Spring.  Feedback from affected government entities, as well as the general public, is critical to the success of the program.

At the meetings there is a presentation describing the Forecast Program, the procedures and data sources used, and historical population trends for local areas. The meeting provide an opportunity for forecast team members to answer questions about the Forecast Program and for local government staff and members of the community to share information about their regions.

The next round of meetings will take place in the Fall of 2019. For notice of up-coming meetings you can subscribe to our email list.

The final meeting this spring will be on 3/14/19 via web conference only and will cover Lane County.
