From 1990 to 1998, net inmigration in Oregon hit unprecedented high levels, leading to policy concerns about needs for infrastructure and services. Different regions of Oregon attracted migrants who differed dramatically in age, educational attainment, occupational status, and income. Migrants who moved for quality-of-life reasons were willing to absorb substantial declines in income. (Author/SV)
