Hillsboro population shift up 30%??

Did Hillsboro annex some developed areas in the last 10 years? Or was this all growth of new housing in the City of Hillsboro?

And now that the City of Portland is going to be counting the missing 45,000 people used for crime stats, the Portland crime rate might just drop. The crime / per population data was using only the 2000 year Portland population data, while other data (2008 US estimate) showed a 45K higher Portland city population base.

Yes, Hillsboro annexed and then developed several areas. I believe Orenco Station is the biggest one, the other is the area near Bethany, north of 26. Plus Intel increased the size of two of their plants (and workforces of course.)

Zero jobs and the long-established trend of agriculture consolidation (fewer and fewer small farms and ranches).

So many people?

Don't let percentage figures mislead you.

Most Eastern Oregon counties had very small populations to begin with, so it doesn't require a whole bunch of exits to make an impact in the trend numbers.

Why are they leaving? Extremely limited opportunities.

Arroyos, mountains, salt pans, and rabbit brush may be beautiful, but they're difficult to cook.

yeah, I guess I didn't word it too precisely.

But hasn't that always been the case there? Not many jobs or growing industries or anything? Have they been losing population for a long time (this is the first I've heard about this)

btw I see you are from Ontario, when I drove through there I noticed quite a few new looking developments. is that area growing still?

Also, if anyone wants the city populations for towns not on the top 20 list, I can look them up from the long-form redistricting data file. Those files are also hosted here by the Census Bureau, but it is admittedly inconvenient to deal with unless you regularly work with large text-based data files anyway. I do, so, it's no problem for me.
