Project Description

The goal of this site is to create more vibrant communities in Ferry, Pend Oreille, and Stevens Counties of northeastern Washington, by providing easy access to current data to anyone at any time. The trends should promote more informed decision-making by individuals and organizations. Indicators were chosen by seven focus groups consisting of a broad range of community members from local government agencies, non-profits, and businesses. Over time, the trends chosen may change, as the preferences of the residents of the three counties change. The development and initial maintenance of the Northeast Washington Trends website has been funded by a federal appropriation from Congress. Because this is a multi-county site, every effort has been made to portray each county separately as well as in a group. Wherever possible, the trends are graphed as an aggregate for the three counties combined, as a set showing the trends for all three on one graph, and each county separately.
