OHCS Performance Measures and Reports
Performance Measures
The Oregon Progress Board is an independent state planning and oversight agency. Created by the Legislature in 1989 to keep Oregon focused on the future, the Board is responsible for implementing the state’s 20-year strategic plan, Oregon Shines. The 12-member panel, chaired by the governor, is made up of citizen leaders and reflects the state’s social, ethnic and political diversity.

The Progress Board focuses Oregon’s institutions on outcomes that support the overall goals of Oregon Shines:
  • Quality jobs for all Oregonians.
  • Safe, caring and engaged communities.
  • Healthy, sustainable surroundings.
The Oregon Progress Board tracks these outcomes through 90 indicators known as the Oregon Benchmarks. The Benchmarks are a broad array of social, economic and environmental health indicators, including K-12 student achievement, per capita income, air quality, crime rates, employment and infant health.

The Progress Board is a catalyst for change. It gathers and distributes data on the Benchmarks. It encourages state and local government agencies, businesses, and nonprofit and citizen groups to use the Benchmarks in their planning and reporting. And it assists its Oregon partners in developing their own benchmarks and creating programs that support meeting Benchmark targets. Both Oregon Shines and the Benchmarks were created with extensive citizen involvement.

Every other year since 1991, the Progress Board has issued a Benchmark Performance Report tracking Oregon’s success in achieving the Benchmarks. Oregon Shines is updated, as resources allow, every five-seven years.
