Oregon Poverty and Progress, 2018 Edition

This morning the Census Bureau released the 2018 American Community Survey data. There is a ton to unpack here and even more once the microdata is released later this year. In the coming months our office will update and share some of this work.

The latest Census data shows that Oregon’s economy continues to get better, with the gains reaching all corners and populations of the state. After 10 years of expansion, Oregon is now enjoying the best economy since the late 1990s and in some respects, reaching historic highs.
