First published in 1982, The Profile is a compilation of statistics, trends, analyses and comparisons for Thurston County and its jurisdictions. Since its inception, The Profile has developed a reputation as a comprehensive and reliable resource for a wide variety of users needing current, accurate data for the region. The Profile is updated each fall.
Thurston Regional Planning Council wishes to thank the many public and private agencies, and their staff, that have provided data and information used in The Profile. Some of the agencies contributing to The Profile include:
Washington State Office of Financial Management
U.S. Census Bureau
U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
Washington Department of Employment Securities
Washington State Superintendent of Public Education
Northwest Multiple Listing Service
Complete data sources are included with each table. While TRPC strives to provide the most accurate and timely data available, it cannot guarantee, and is not responsible for, the reliability of data originating from other institutions.
Thurston Regional Planning Council published The Profile as a printed document between 1982 and 2013. During that time period, TRPC continued to use the latest technologies and information to make the document a leading resource for data on Thurston County.
