Oregon’s population grew just 12% between 2000 and 2010 after increasing 20% the prior decade. Neighboring states Nevada, Idaho and Washington grew 35%, 21% and 14%, respectively, with only California growing slower than Oregon at 10%. Within the state, Washington, Multnomah and Deschutes counties added the most new residents. Deschutes was the fastest-growing in terms of percentage, +49%, followed by two other Central Oregon counties: Crook, +42% and Jefferson, +20%. The fastest growing cities by percentage were Happy Valley, +163%, Sisters, +102%, and Redmond, +93%. In terms of actual residents, Portland,+54,714, Bend, +31,096, and Hillsboro, +21,029, added the most population. On the other hand, in Eastern Oregon, Gilliam, Baker, Wallowa, Grant and Sherman counties all declined in population during the last 10 years.

Striving for social equity is the mission of many nonprofits, and this year’s 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon survey shows employees are most satisfied with their organizations’ fair treatment of differing racial, gender, disability, age and economic groups. But as a national discourse about racial discrimination and equity for low-income groups takes center stage, data show Oregon’s 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For still need to make progress on addressing these issues within their own organizations.
