Data Resources

The Washington State Association of Counties (WSAC) Data and Research Program is a strategic goal of the WSAC Board of Directors. The primary goal of the program is to collect, analyze, and present accurate and factual data in support of the WSAC Policy Program’s advocacy.

In doing so, we try to help inform policy decisions made by our members and legislators which may impact counties. The Research Program is striving to become the central conduit for county-based data and information. To achieve this goal, the Research Program compiles and publishes primary survey data, creates analysis tools and reports to analyze key trends, and organizes links to county data and information from many secondary sources.

The Research Program is also dedicated to helping WSAC prepare training and educational materials that may become necessary throughout the year for our members or other important stakeholders interested in learning about county government.
