- For twenty years (1986-2006) the % growth in MFI was HIGHER than the % growth of the 2 BR FMR.
- But, in the last decade (2006-2016) the % growth in the FMR was 7 times the % growth in median family income.
(Not shown: To match the 195% growth in FMR from 1986 to 2016, the 2016 PDX MFI would need to be at $88,700 or 21% more than the $73,300 actual 2016 MFI).
And here's a graph showing the Portland 2 BR FMR/MFI % increases by decade.
