The Office of Forecasting, Research and Analysis (OFRA) supports the Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) by providing accurate, timely, unbiased caseload forecasts and related research and analysis to support budgeting, policy development and operational planning.
We provide caseload and regional forecasts for ODHS and OHA using econometric modeling and prior history of enrolled cases to create projections. From these reports, estimates of expenditures for the two agencies' budgets can be made. Objective and impartial forecasts are critical to developing accurate budget estimates. Overstated budgets may result in larger appropriations than necessary while underestimated budgets may require additional appropriations from General Fund reserves. In addition to internal data sources, we also use Oregon's Office of Economic Analysis' Demographic Forecast, Oregon's Employment Department's Labor Market Information System and the US Census Bureau.
