​HB 3040 was passed in 2021 and directed OHCS to study and draft a report on System Development Charges. The report studies SDC’s and their role in housing costs throughout the state, provides a comprehensive history of SDC charges across the county, and looks at methodologies throughout the state. This report is due in December 2022 to the legislature. ​

OnTheMap Overview: 
OnTheMap is an online mapping and reporting application located at​ that shows where people work and where workers live. OnTheMap was developed through a unique partnership between the U.S. Census Bureau and its Local Employment Dynamics (LED) partner states.
OnTheMap provides an easy-to-use interface for creating, viewing, printing, and downloading workforce related maps, profiles, and underlying data. An interactive map viewer displays workplace and residential distributions by user defined geographies at census block level detail. The application also provides companion reports on worker and firm characteristics, the comparisons of employment and residential areas, worker flows, and commuting patterns. In OnTheMap, statistics can be generated for specific segments of the workforce, including ages, earnings, or industry groupings.
OnTheMap Highlights

Comprehensive Coverage – Census block-level coverage for home and work areas in 50 partner states/territories with consecutive years of data from 2002 to 2011. Available characteristics include worker age, earnings, industry sector, worker race, worker ethnicity, worker educational attainment, worker sex, firm age and firm size.

Powerful Analysis Tools – Six different analysis types are available for users to analyze, compare, and summarize a vast amount of labor force data for user-defined or Census-standard areas. Results are presented through interactive maps, charts, and reports.

Versatile Outputs – Results can be exported to a report (PDF, HTML, XLS), to a map (KML or Shapefile), or to other forms (PNG images or composite PDF). Users can also save their analysis settings for future use in OnTheMap.
