Occupy Portland Survey Data File

One of the reasons I started this blog was so I would have a place to release information related to the survey I helped do of the Occupy Portland Camp on November 12th, 2011.  Which was the same day Occupy was evicted from Lownsdale and Chapman Square.

Since that time I have not had a lot of time to work on this project.  Between work, family, applying for grad school, and a few health issues, I just have not had a lot of time to work on this.  But I wanted to make sure that people who wanted to take a look at the raw data would have an opportunity to do so.  Which means i am releasing the data!

We ended up getting 134 people fill out at least some of the rather lengthy survey we created.  

If you want to look at the survey we used you can download it here (  We based it off a survey that was done at the New York Occupy camp (

We are still working on the report of what we found.  If you would like to help us with the report or just look at what we currently have please contact me at

Please feel free to post in the comments anything interesting you find in the data file.  I consider this data to be completely in the Public Domain so please feel free to use it for any project you would like.
