DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT OREGON?


  1. Oregon's 2010 population is just over 3.8 million, a 12% increase over 2000.

  2. Oregon contains a diverse landscape including the windswept Pacific coastline, the volcanoes of the rugged and glaciated Cascade Mountain Range, many waterfalls (including Multnomah Falls), dense evergreen forests, and high desert across much of the eastern portion of the state, extending into the Great Basin.

  3. Oregon was admitted to the Union on February 14, 1859. Founded as a refuge from disputes over slavery, Oregon had a "whites only" clause in its original state Constitution. At the outbreak of the American Civil War, regular U.S. troops were withdrawn and sent east. Volunteer cavalry recruited in California were sent north to Oregon to keep peace and protect the populace.

  4. The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Oregon in 2008 was $161.6 billion, it is the United States's 26th wealthiest state by GDP. The state's per capita personal income in 2008 was $38,801.

  5. As of April 2011, the state's unemployment rate is 9.5%. Oregon's largest for-profit employer is Intel, located in the Silicon Forest area on Portland's west side. Intel was the largest employer in Oregon until 2008. As of January 2009, the largest employer in Oregon is Providence Health & Services a non-profit.

  6. Oregon's climate—particularly in the western part of the state—is heavily influenced by the Pacific Ocean. The climate is mild, but periods of extreme hot and cold can affect parts of the state. Oregon's population centers, which lie mostly in the western part of the state, are moist and mild, while the lightly populated high deserts of Central and Eastern Oregon are much drier.
