Since 1992, DHM has led the Oregon Values and Beliefs Project, a decennial study of Oregonians across the state. Our work on OVB seeks to test some of the assumptions about public attitudes that often drive our political discourse. In 2013, over 9,500 Oregonians participated in the study, which is designed to include groups that are typically not heard in other public forums or civic participation methodologies. We are proud to give ordinary Oregonians the opportunity to provide feedback to policymakers and interest groups how they really feel about fundamental issues of the day.
