Bend-Redmond MSA vs. Oregon
Comparative Trends Analysis:
Population Growth and Change, 1969-2020
Introduction
Bend-Redmond MSA vs. Oregon
Bend-Redmond MSA:
2020 Population = 201,769
2020 Percent of State = 0.1%
Oregon:
2020 Population = 4,241,507
2020 Percent of U.S. = 1.3%
Attracting and retaining people to live, work, raise a family, and retire underlies the economic vitality of any region. Population growth is both a cause--and a consequence--of economic growth. Patterns of population growth and change reflect differences among regions to attract and retain people both as producers and consumers in their economy.
The following graphs offer a broad overview of trends in the pattern of population growth and change of the Bend-Redmond MSA with comparisons to Oregon and the nation at large. This analysis features alternative approaches toward discussing, diagnosing and comparing the Bend-Redmond MSA vs. Oregon's population growth over 1969-2020. The data used are those compiled by the Regional Income and Product Divisions of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. Department of Commerce.

Figure 1.
Figure 1 traces the Bend-Redmond MSA's annual population for the period 1969-2020 to illustrate population patterns over time. During this 52-year period, the Bend-Redmond MSA's population rose from 29,726 in 1969 to 201,769 in 2020, for a net gain of 172,043, or 578.8%.
NOTE: The county and state population totals reported by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) are from the Bureau of Census midyear (July 1) estimates. These estimates may differ from those prepared independently in some states by various agencies and/or universities.

Figure 2 traces Oregon's annual population for the period 1969-2020 to illustrate population patterns over time. During this 52-year period, Oregon's population rose from 2,062,000 in 1969 to 4,241,507 in 2020, for a net gain of 2,179,507, or 105.7%.

Figure 3.
Figure 3 shows the Bend-Redmond MSA's population growth in a broader context by offering direct comparisons across time with Oregon, the United States. The growth indices shown here express each region's population in 1969 as a base figure of 100, and the populations in later years as a percentage of the 1969 base figure. This method allows for more direct comparison of differences in population growth between regions that may differ vastly in size.
The Bend-Redmond MSA's overall population growth was 578.8% over 1969-2020 outpaced Oregon's increase of 105.7%, and outpaced the United States' increase of 63.7%.

Figure 4.
Another interesting and insightful way of contrasting the population growth of the Bend-Redmond MSA is to compare its individual percentage contributions to Oregon's statewide population over time, as shown in Figure 4. A rising share means a region's population grew faster, or declined less, than Oregon's population, while a declining share shows it grew more slowly.
In 1969, the Bend-Redmond MSA's population totaled 1.4% of Oregon's population, while in 2020 it equated to 4.8% thereby yielding a +3.3% share-shift.

Figure 5.
Figure 5 highlights the short-run pattern of the Bend-Redmond MSA's population growth by tracking the year-to-year percent change over 1970-2020. The average annual percent change for the entire 51-year period is also illustrated on this chart to provide a benchmark for gauging periods of relative high--and relative low--growth against the backdrop of the long-term average.
On average, the Bend-Redmond MSA's population grew at an annual rate of 3.85% over 1970-2020. The Bend-Redmond MSA posted its highest growth in 1978 (11.22%) and recorded its lowest growth in 1983 (-0.82%). In 2020, the Bend-Redmond MSA's population grew by 2.20%

Figure 6.
Over the past five decades some msas have experienced extreme swings in growth, and often such swings have tended to coincide with the decades themselves. Figure 6 again shows the annual percent change in the Bend-Redmond MSA's population since 1970, but this time they are displayed with average growth rates for the decade of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020.
During the 1970s, the Bend-Redmond MSA's annual population growth rate averaged 7.02%. It averaged 2.04% during the 1980s, 4.60% in the 1990s, 3.47% during the 2000s, 2.30% during the 2010s, and 2.20% thus far this decade (2020).

Figure 7.
Figure 7 compares the decade average growth rates for the Bend-Redmond MSA noted in the previous graph with the corresponding decade averages for Oregon and the nation. As the chart reveals, the Bend-Redmond MSA's average annual population growth topped Oregon's average throughout the 1970s (7.02% vs. 2.26%), recorded above Oregon's average throughout the 1980s (2.04% vs. 0.80%), recorded above Oregon's average throughout the 1990s (4.60% vs. 1.98%), led Oregon's average during the 2000s (3.47% vs. 1.16%), and recorded above Oregon's average over the 10 year period of the last decade, 2010-2019 (2.30% vs. 1.02%). Thus far in 2020, the Bend-Redmond MSA's growth has topped Oregon's average (2.20% vs. 0.60%).
Finally, relative to nationwide population growth trends, the Bend-Redmond MSA topped the nation during the 1970s (7.02% vs. 1.10%), registered above the nation throughout the 1980s (2.04% vs. 0.95%), outpaced the nation during the 1990s (4.60% vs. 1.23%), led the nation throughout the 2000s (3.47% vs. 0.95%), and exceeded the nation over 2010-2020 (2.30% vs. 0.68%). Thus far in 2020, growth for the Bend-Redmond MSA has outpaced the national average (2.20% vs. 0.35%).
