Oregonians Share More Than They Think


Our country is deeply divided politically, and Oregon is just like any other state.  Or is it? 

When you ask people around the state about the values they hold dear, the answers are often similar, despite factors like political party. 

The Oregon Values Project discovered this in its most recent once-a-decade assessment of values among the state's citizens. 

Education, health and environmental quality make up the top three values.  

We'll discuss those and the others with the project's research director.
