Pew has published data HERE that shows changes in key metrics for the biggest city in the 30 largest metro areas.
I compiled an Excel workbook that includes worksheets that compare the City of Portland and the City of Seattle, rank all 30 cities, and provide a link to the table that is the source of the rankings. That workbook is HERE and is also embeded below:
Note that among these 30 cities the City of Portland has:
- The 4th highest rank in the change in assessed property values (ranking higher that City of Seattle).
- The 7th lowest unemployment rate.
- The 9th highest median household income.
- The 7th highest percentage change in population. (ranking higher than City of Seattle).
