BEND, OR -- The latest population estimates from Portland State University show Deschutes County grew by nearly 3900 people.  Risa Prohel is with PSU's Population Research Center:  "Deschutes County's population increased by 2.4%, and that's a lot higher than the state's growth rate.  That means 3800 were added 2013, 2014, so population growth is number one of all of Oregon's counties in the past year."  

 

The other top growth counties were Hood River, Washington, Gilliam and Clackamas counties.  The state's population increased by 43,000 in the last year -- an increase of just 1.1%.
