Looking for data, reports or forecasts on land, population and employment? Metro compiles and maintains a wealth of information about the economy and demographics of the region.
Most Metro data is defined by the region's boundary, but in some cases the data are presented by county, city jurisdiction or census tract. Data comparing national trends are also provided where available or of interest.
The Regional Land Information System (RLIS) is an acclaimed Geographic Information Systems (GIS) program that provides comprehensive data relevant to issues affecting the three counties and 25 cities in the metro area. The data are created and maintained at the Data Resource Center in cooperation with our regional partners. Additional data are compiled from other sources such as the U.S. Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics, or Bureau of Economic Analysis.
Facts about the region's economy and demographics compiled in easy to use Excel spreadsheets, including regional forecast allocation, land data, population and households, employment and income, and housing supply.More
