Socio-Economic Data

These interactive dashboards provide details about various socio-economic factors within the Central Lane MPO area which are related to Title VI requirements.  Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other federal nondiscrimination statutes prohibit discrimination based on race, color, national origin, disability, age, gender, or income status in the provisions of benefits and services of programs and activities receiving federal funding. One of the key purposes of Title VI is to ensure that public funds are not spent in a way that encourages, subsidizes, or results in discrimination.​​ More information about Title VI can be found on this page.

​The first tab shows the distribution of "Communities of Concern" as defined by Title VI.  The second tab explores the relationships between different socio-economic factors. The third tab shows how these socio-economic factors have changed over time for the area as a whole. the fourth tab takes a deeper dive into one particular facet of the Census data.

​Data Sources:
​U.S. Census Bureau 5-Year American Community Survey (ACS) estimates at the Block Group level, where available.
​U.S. Census Bureau 1-Year ACS estimates for the Eugene Urbanized Area, which closely approximates the Central Lane MPO area.

​Unlike the decennial Census, ACS estimates are based on a sample, and each estimate is accompanied by a margin of error. ACS margins of error are based on a 90-percent confidence level, and confidence bounds can be created by adding or subtracting the MOE from each estimate. For some detailed tabulations, and especially for smaller geographies, MOEs can be quite large relative to the estimate. The statistics shown on these dashboards are typically generated from multiple estimates, each of which has its own MOE. Some of the dashboard elements provide links to the ACS source tables, where individual estimates and MOEs can be found. Note that for Block Groups that lie partially within the CLMPO area, ACS estimates were apportioned accordingly, and may not match data found in source tables.
