Socioeconomic Indicators Report: The Sacramento San Joaquin Delta 

The Delta Protection Commission initiated the “Delta Socioeconomic Indicators Project” in June 2016, with the goal of compiling a regional set of data that would describe the overall economic and social well-being of the Delta region. The Socioeconomic Indicators Report provides a quantitative snapshot for benchmarking policy progress in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta region. Results and findings are presented as a snapshot that can be replicated in the future and tracked over time.

Sacramento Diasporas Project

In 2005, one-fifth of the U.S. foreign born population, or more than 7 million individuals, lived in sprawling metropolitan areas that can be described as America’s “twenty-first century gateways.” The increasing diversity of metropolitan regions raises a number of issues concerning (im)migration and the relations between different Diaspora communities when these groups have their own cultural traditions and beliefs.
