City Population Estimates

Portland State University's Population Research Center produces the annual Population Estimates for Oregon and its counties and cities, as well as the estimates by age and sex for the state and its counties. These estimates are used by the state and local governments, various organizations and agencies for revenue sharing, funds allocation, and planning purposes.

The population estimates are prepared as of July 1 of each year. PSU sends the preliminary estimates to state and local jurisdictions in mid-November for review, and then certify the estimates December 15. The annual Oregon Population Report is published in the following spring. The Report presents the population estimates for Oregon and its counties and incorporated cities. It contains ten tables, including the population rank for incorporated cities, the population by metropolitan areas, population for proportions of Oregon's incorporated cities that are located in more than one county, information on the annexed population added to incorporated cities, and estimates for the population by age and sex for counties.

State Shared Revenue Report

Cities receive payment from five different state shared revenue programs each fiscal year. Most shared revenues are
distributed to cities based on population, but some
use more complex distribution mechanisms. The five revenue
sources are summarized in LOC's State Shared Revenue Report which includes descriptions of each revenue source, forecast projection trends, and key legislative updates that may impact the revenue.
