Overview

Data Services & Requests

The SCAG Data Services Program was initiated and organized starting in the late 1980s with the goal of being the preeminent source of information for the southern California region. The purpose of the program is to derive and promote a model policy for distributing geospatial data and other information developed and maintained at SCAG. We believe so strongly in providing this service to stakeholders that we have incorporated this philosophy into our Ten Year Strategic Plan.

Local Profiles

SCAG has prepared Local Profiles for each SCAG member jurisdiction every two years since 2009. The Local Profiles provide jurisdictions with updated data and analysis to support community planning and outreach efforts. They are also useful resources for the business community, academia, and residents of Southern California. SCAG released the 2019 Local Profiles at the Regional Conference & General Assembly, held in Palm Desert on May 1-3, 2019.
