Enduring values and beliefs

WHAT HAS REMAINED CONSTANT OVER THE LAST DECADE
To Oregonians, family comes first. It was true in 1992 and is still true today. In fact, when asked about their "Core Values," Oregonians have remained basically steady between 1992 and 2002. Additionally, they consistently rank secure accessible health care and quality public education as top priorities. Oregonians value these services for themselves and for their families.
