Digging Into Eugene City Councilor Name ID

image003

This graph continues our study of Eugene City Councilor Name ID. It is interesting because it compares Name ID with longevity on the council. Essentially, there is a nearly straight line relationship between these two variables.

Some councilors are above the line, including Taylor and Evans, and some are below the line, including Poling and Syrett. Above the line implies the councilor’s prominence is above expectations and below the line implies the reverse.

This linear relationship has not always been true. Just recently, Pat Farr and Andrea Ortiz threw it off. Both had unusually high Name ID.
