MWCOG represents the three-county region (Marion, Polk, and Yamhill Counties) in the Oregon State Census Data Center (SDC), located at Portland State University within the Population Research Center. The SDC is a cooperative program between the states and the Census Bureau that was created in 1978 to make data available locally to the public through a network of state agencies, universities, libraries, and regional and local governments. As a SDC affiliate agency, MWVCOG’s role is to provide local expertise on Census and other related data and assist the SDC in disseminating Census data to its service area.
