Oregon libraries: Per-capita circulation

A Library Data Visualization tool, designed by the Connecticut State Library, shows circulation per capita in Oregon. In Jackson County, circulation per capita is 7.84.

Data came from the 2011 Public Library Survey, collected by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Circulation per capita was determined by dividing total circulation per year, 1,594,623, by the service area’s population. Total circulation per year included circulation of all library materials of all types, including renewals.

Use the graphic’s filters to view circulation rates for other states or the entire U.S. or to limit libraries by the size of the communities they serve.
