COMMENTARY

23rd January 2011
How come the number of Jewish residents are not listed in this listing? You list every possible demographic for Christianity-Demographic-religious denomination, yet you say nothing about the Jewish populations of Oregon. Hello, we are prevalent here.

Where can I find current voter registration statistics?

I am looking for the number of different languages spoken in Oregon schools, both elementary and secondary.

I am NOT looking for the languages used for instruction, simply languages spoken by Oregon students.

Thank you.
