The national poverty rate hit 15% last year; Oregon was not quite that poor. One in seven Oregonians were in poverty last year.  That's the Census Bureau count.  That is a rate of 14.4%, or 553,000 impoverished Oregonians.  And that number is much higher than 2010 when 403,000 were living in poverty. The median Oregon household income is $51,526, a slight increase until you figure in inflation, then it is actually less than in 2011.
