Hello! Below are my go-to sources for statistics on literacy (and all education topics PreK-12). These are great for grant applications, strategic planning/outcome based planning and evaluation, reports to key stake holders, and advocacy materials.

  *   Children First for Oregon<http://www.cffo.org/site/download/county_data_books>: You can view statistics for the state as a whole and by individual county so you can get statistics specific to your region and compare them with the state statistics.
  *   Oregon Department of Education: Reports<http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=1722>: Allows you to get school district level statistics on Reading & Lit. Click on 'Assessment', look under 'Results-District and School' and click on 'Search Test Results (2004-2011)'  and you'll pull up a page that allows you to create detailed reports by year, district, population, and subject.
  *   OregonLive.com: Your Schools<http://schools.oregonlive.com/>: Provides similar information as ODE. There aren't as many options for creating detailed reports as ODE, but their reports are more user-friendly snapshots of statistics.
  *   National Center for Education Statistics<http://nces.ed.gov/fastfacts/>: They have tons of statistics, but their 'Fast Facts' page is pretty easy to use. Click on 'Assessments', then click on 'Reading' and you should find national statistics. You can also find state-by-state ranking under 'Assessments' if you are interested in learning how Oregon compares.
  *   Kids Count Data Center<http://datacenter.kidscount.org/data#OR/2/0>: They also have a lot of statistics, but you can 'build a custom indicator report for your community' which includes only the data you want to see. In addition, the website allows you to compare this nationally collected data with similar data collected locally via Children First for Oregon.
