This book is a great tool for all Oregonians, but especially for someone who works for the state or agency that is connected to state work. For anyone looking to choose a place to live, it's very helpful, as well. It is full of all kinds of information you may not even think you needed to know.

This is a terrific resource for learning about Oregon. I went through all 36 counties, including some I have never heard of, and feel like I now know our state a lot better. The latter part of the book has comparative data for all the counties on everything from poverty levels and school completion to job growth and broadband access. The book is an annual and I can see myself buying an update edition next year.

As somebody who works for a public agency, this book is so incredibly valuable. The snapshots provided for each county are helpful in determining who your agency is serving, what their needs may be, and what your agency should focus its attentions on.
