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? Maywood Park, 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.

Review Of Portland by Starlink

I think Portland is the absolute F*****G worst place to live. The west side of Oregon is mostly just terrible. Sure there are places like Coos Bay and Newport which are nice but I hate that side of the state. I've lived in Baker City on the East side of the state for 18 years and it's probably the nicest place you could live in Oregon. Portland however is so awful I actively avoid it if I have to go to say, Seattle. I'd gladly add an extra hour or two to my journey to avoid that vile city. The majority of people are Bums and Hipsters. And the drivers are rude as f**k and traffic is always atrocious. I'll never go back as long as I live. Rant over.

Review Of Salem by HomeSnacks User

Nestled in the lush and colorful Willamette Valley--just 50 miles south of Portland you'll find Salem, Oregon's capital. With low crime, a sprawling economy, great wages, and highly educated work force, Salem makes for a vibrant community to raise a family, or meet that special someone. The recreational opportunities, year-round are truly unsurpassed. Ranging from the pacfic northwest's majestic cascade range--which offers excellent snow-sports and hiking, to oregon's picturesque oregon coast--with awe-inspiring cliffs, and scenic beauty that rivals any other beaches found on the east coast.

Cultural diversity, natural beauty, and good drivers!
