Oregon’s population increased by more than 40,000 people over the last year — or 1%, according to an estimate out Friday from Portland State University’s Population Research Center.
Since 2010, the state has added more than 400,000 residents.
Still, this year has seen slower growth than in the recent past. Last year, Oregon’s population increased by 54,200 people. The year before that, the population grew by 64,750.
