THE TRANSPORTATION DISADVANTAGED IN OREGON
Most of the poor, the young, the aged, and the disabled are transportation disadvantaged. That is, most of these people do not share the level of mobility enjoyed by most Oregonians. The purpose of this document is to provide a clearer picture of the distribution of these people in Oregon. In addition, the handicapped and elderly are identified as a subgroup of the transportation disadvantaged. This technical document can provide the basis for decision making on where and what kinds of services are needed. A major portion of the document describes a method by which the overlap between the poor, young, aged and disabled can be reconciled. The data which resulted are given for all counties and for the state illustrated below.
