Methodology

Neighborhoods

Boundaries represent records maintained by the city as of January 2020. 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

2019 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. Figures were rounded for legibility.

People

Data from the US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates, released December 2019. The ACS data are estimates only and accuracy varies by attribute.

Rent Costs

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 Census defines household as including “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.

Crime

Portland neighborhood crime data provided by the Portland Police Bureau. For other areas, data was sourced from the FBI, Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, Happy Valley Police Department, and the Oregon Annual Uniform Crime Report of the Oregon State Police. Not all types of crimes are included, and figures here are for comparative purposes only. Nonviolent crime here 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 (e.g., commercial districts, or neighborhoods with high traffic and low population density).

Parks

Data from Metro and/or individual cities.

Transit

Neighborhood data from TriMet. City and suburban transit information was sourced from TriMet as well as other services, including CC Rider, C-TRAN, Canby Area Transit, Sandy Area Metro, and South Metro Area Regional Transit.

Minutes by Car to Downtown

Google Maps estimate, based on non-rush-hour conditions, from a neighborhood/suburb central point to Pioneer Courthouse Square. Rush-hour travel time was estimated for a 9 a.m. weekday arrival.

Walk Score

2020 data from Walkscore.com. This score reflects, on a scale of 1 to 100, a neighborhood’s pedestrian-friendliness based on distances to amenities such as grocery stores and other routine destinations. For some cities and neighborhoods with a commercial central point or large nonresidential area (such as Forest Park), the score was taken for a point in a central residential portion.
