This report provides population estimates for Oregon, its counties, and cities for the years 1980 through 1995. As mandated by Oregon law (ORS 190.510 to 190.610), the Center for Population Research and Census at Portland State University acting on behalf of the State Board of Higher Education, annually estimates the July 1 population for each county and incorporated city in Oregon. These population estimates are used in the allocation of certain state tax revenues to cities and counties.

Population figures presented in this report represent all the people who usually reside in the area designated. This includes people living in correctional institutions, nursing homes, and college dormitories. College students are considered residents of the place where they live while attending college. Seasonal populations, such as those living in summer homes, are considered residents of the place they consider their usual residence.

The eight tables and five figures in this report show current and historical population data for Oregon.


At the time these reports were compiled, the Population Research Center was known as the Center for Population Research and Census, School of Urban and Public Affairs, Portland State University.
