The purpose of the Regional Data Baseline Assessment and Next Steps Report is to assess existing data collection and uses and determine whether any key gaps exist for measuring long-term outcomes as identified in the grant. The Data Inventory and Next Steps Report builds upon work conducted by the University of Oregon’s Community Planning Workshop (CPW) . The purpose of the task was framed in the work plan as :
To assess existing data collection and uses, determine whether any critical gaps exist, and develop recommended next steps to address them.” The primary tasks in the work plan included the following:
Task 1: Develop and distribute a regional data survey
Task 2: Form an Advisory Committee to oversee and contribute to “Data Plan” efforts
Task 3: Develop a Regional Data Framework and Inventory
Task 4: Develop Recommendations & Next Steps
Lane Council of Governments was charged with leading the data task, and to form and staff a Regional Data Advisory Committee. Committee members were recruited primarily through suggestions by the Lane Livability Consortium Project Management Team. The committee represented data managers, data consumers and data generators (including some from the non-profit sector). And consisted of 17 members, representing 13 regional organizations..
The report was developed under the direction of the Regional Data Advisory Committee, and reflects the assembly of survey results from 130 local public and non-profit staff, committee and working group feedback, and LCOG staff research. The Regional Data Advisory Committee, with assistance from LCOG and Lane County staff, developed a Regional Data Catalog.
