Five years ago, Portland’s heat map looked quite a bit cooler. Growth was tepid, concentrated in a small patch southwest of downtown. Our suburbs still reeled from the Great Recession. You could buy a house in Cully for a median $188K. Times have changed. Today, that Cully home goes for $340K—and in a city where values surged 12 percent last year to $380K, that’s a steal. By the numbers, behold Portland’s new hotness.

Welcome to our annual quick reference guide to 122 Portland neighborhoods and suburbs.

Methodology

Neighborhoods 

Boundaries represent records maintained by the city as of January 2017. 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, unclaimed sections of Multnomah County were excluded.

Real Estate 

2016 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 2016. 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 include parks and industrial tracts.

Crime 

2015 crime data was sourced either from the FBI or directly from the reporting city. As of press time, 2015 crime data was not available for Portland neighborhoods, as well as for the cities of Fairview, Maywood Park, Oregon City, Portland, St. Helens, Wood Village, and unincorporated Sauvie Island. 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. 

Parks 

Data from Metro (2016 or most recently available) and city parks departments.

Transit 

Portland 2016 data from TriMet. Suburban transit information was sourced from TriMet as well as individual city services including CC Rider, C-TRAN, Canby Area Transit, Yamhill County Transit Area, and South Metro Area Regional Transit.

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 

2016 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 (—).
