Deschutes County saw one of the biggest jumps in the latest census just released. Population over the last ten years in the county shows a 36% increase. Former Deschutes County Sheriff Les Stiles isn't surprised by the population numbers, but says we have to examine them further. “Because the real question is, yes we've had growth, some loss in absolute numbers. The real question that needs to be asked is the net domestic migration number, in other words, all the people coming in and the people going out.” Stiles says we need to look at whether there's been a brain drain of educated people leaving the area and if that's true, who's replacing them. The Redmond area saw the biggest growth in the County, nearly doubling in size over the last ten years.
