The new U.S. Census city population estimates are out today. They always track a year behind, i.e. issuing estimates on or around July 1 for the previous July 1 “on or around.”
We’re 537,081 strong. Just below Oklahoma City ahd just ahead of the place where Jo-Jo left his home (Tucson, Arizona).
Hey look at the data this way. If you live within the city of Portland, and if it was not for you, we’d be 537,080. So you are important, and a statistic.
