The county population of approximately 63,043 lives in urban, rural and frontier communities, with seven cities and several smaller communities. Over the past 20 years, the health status and quality of life have declined due to economic conditions. Unemployment and poverty are among the highest in the state. There are great challenges and therefore great opportunities to make a difference in the lives of the people of Coos County.
