Methodology

Neighborhoods 

Portland neighborhood boundaries represent records maintained by the city as of January 2016. Neighborhood boundary conflicts were resolved for statistical purposes only. Due to overlap between certain neighborhoods, boundary definitions may vary occasionally across categories. With the exception of the area unofficially (but universally) known as Dunthorpe—new to our data set this year—unclaimed sections of Multnomah County were excluded.

Real Estate 

2015 data from the Regional Multiple Listing Service with analysis by the Center for Spatial Analysis and Research at Portland State University’s Department of Geography. All figures were rounded for legibility.

People  

Data from the US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates, released December 2015. The ACS data are estimates only and accuracy varies by attribute.

Median Rent

Calculated from all renter-occupied units, estimated median rent is not adjusted for unit size or number of occupants. Figure includes estimated monthly utility costs.

Median Income

The ACS defines household as “all the persons who occupy a housing unit as their usual place of residence.” Thus this estimate includes living situations ranging from individuals to large households.

Population Density

Calculations exclude parks and industrial tracts.

Crime  

Portland 2014 data is from the Portland Police Bureau. (Due to a PPB database overhaul, 2015 data was not available at press time.) Suburban data is from 2014 FBI records.

  • Nonviolent crime includes burglary, larceny (theft), and vehicle theft.
  • Violent crime is defined as aggravated assault, arson, homicide, rape, and robbery.
  • Crimes per 1,000 figures are based on reported incidents of both nonviolent and violent crime. Many factors can influence the crimes-per-1,000 figure and can sometimes complicate meaningful neighborhood comparisons. Because the rates are based on residential population data, for instance, large nonresident workforces in areas like Lloyd District and Hayden Island can distort associated crime rates.
Parks  

Data from Metro (2015 or most recently available) and city parks departments.

Transit  

Portland 2015 data from TriMet. Suburban transit information was sourced from TriMet as well as individual cities and may contain varying standards of classification.

Minutes by Car to Downtown  

Google Maps estimate, based on non–rush hour conditions, from a central neighborhood/suburb to Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Walk Score 

2015 data from Walkscore.com. This score reflects, on a scale of 1 to 100, how easy it is to live in a neighborhood without a car or bike, based on the number of nearby amenities like sidewalks and grocery stores.

Unavailable Data 

Unavailable data is noted with a dash (—).
