Overall, the housing stock of the Mid-Columbia region is older than either that of the US or Oregon and
Washington. This is common for most rural areas. The slow housing growth during the 1990s is an indicatio
of the economic struggles this region has faced. More troubling than slow housing growth, however, is the
high number of homes that lack complete plumbing facilities. The MCEDD region is more than twice as
likely to have a home that lacks these basic facilities. The situation is particularly acute in Skamania County,
where the rate if over five-times that of the State Average.
