Population/Demographic Resources

When creating your user profiles, it would help to research EWU students, so that the profiles better represent large groups of students. How old are most EWU students? What is their background? What are they majoring in?

  • Some institutions do collect and share demographic data, such as EWU and our students. 
  • Federal, state and local government agencies collect and share demographic data down to the city level, so you can find out about Spokane City or Spokane County.
