The Oregon Center for Public Policy has updated its "Basic Famiy Budget Calculator" with the latest info on what it takes to afford to live in certain Oregon cities.

 

Juan Carlos Ordonez with the Oregon Center for Public Policy says the calculator considers housing, food, child care and other necessities in its formula.

 

"I think it really opens up people's eyes.  It gives in common sense terms why Oregonians and Americans find in their own families  -- they are struggling to make ends meet.  You'll see the numbers.  There are a lot of people in the same boat.  We want to get a conversation going where we should focus on what we should be doing to reduce poverty and strengthen the middle class"

Portland was the most expensive place to live in the state, followed by Eugene and Medford and then Bend.  Rural Oregon is the least expensive area to live in the state.
