PORTLAND, OR -- Oregon’s population is expected to grow by 1.3% in 2015, surpassing more than 4-million. According to preliminary estimates by Portland State University’s Population Research Center, Deschutes County will add more than 3,000 people, this year. That 2.6% increase represents the largest percentage change in the state. 

 

Researchers found the majority of the increase is due to more people moving into the state, with new babies accounting for a shrinking portion of the growth. They say in most areas, the number of annual deaths is rising faster than the birthrate.
