How We Determined The Largest Cities In Oregon

We've been ranking and dissecting cities in the Beaver State for over 4 years now -- making this actually the fourth time we've run the numbers. We always use the best data, the US Census. In this case, that means we are using the 2013-2017 American Community Survey.

It what is probably the most simple analysis we run each year, we ranked every place in Oregon from biggest to smallest. The biggest city this year? That would be Portland.

The smallest? Joseph, although there are places smaller than 1,000 people not listed here, so keep that in mind as we take a look at the top ten.

I lived in Eugene, Bend, Lakeview, La Grande and Clay Creek I have friends in Springfield, Portland and Yachats. All these areas are fantastic places and I enjoyed living there very much. I would take any of Oregon's towns over where I live now. Had to move to So Cal for work but my heart is still in Oregon. The people there are happy, mellow and friendly!
