SACOG Information Center

The Information Center has data covering El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba Counties and the cities within each county.

This web site contains only a small portion of the data that are available at the Information Center. If you do not find what you need on the site, give us a call, (916) 321-9000, or send us a question at Custom reports are available if our prepackaged reports and summaries do not have exactly what you need. If we don't have the data you're looking for, we may be able to refer you to another resource, such as the California State Department of Finance, Demographic Research Unit's Data Source Handbook which has nearly 100 pages of sources of information across 40 topics from agriculture to vital statistics.
