In all but 7 states, Oregon imports more people than it exports, creating a population trade surplus.

 

The Portland Business Journal recently published this great infographic (click on the photo to go to the interactive map) showing that Oregon has a trade surplus will all but seven of the United States.  The commodity creating this surplus?  People! State by state, more people are moving to Oregon than are moving from Oregon to those states.  As a result, Oregon’s population continues to rise.  So when you learn that a friend or colleague is moving to Oregon form California, Colorado, Texas, or any of the other 43 states with a population trade deficit with Oregon, kindly tell them that you know a great Realtor in Portland who would love to introduce them to his great city.
