The Portland-Vancouver, Oregon-Washington, Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), also known as the Portland metropolitan area or Greater Portland, is an urban area in the U.S. states of Oregon and Washington centered around the city of Portland, Oregon. The U.S. Census Bureau's definition for the MSA is currently all of the following counties: Clackamas County, Oregon, Multnomah County, Oregon, Washington County, Oregon, Yamhill County, Oregon, Clark County, Washington, and Skamania County, Washington. The Washington counties are separated from Oregon by the Columbia River.
The Oregon portion of the metropolitan area is the state's largest urban center. Portions of this are under the jurisdiction of Metro, a directly-elected regional government which, among other things, is responsible for land use planning in the region.
Before the recent redefinition of metropolitan boundaries, the Portland Consolidated Metropolitan Area included the Salem Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Major cities in the region in addition to Portland include Beaverton, Gresham, Hillsboro in Oregon, and Vancouver in Washington. The area also includes the smaller cities of Damascus, Gladstone, King City, Lake Oswego, Milwaukie, Oregon City, Sherwood, Tigard, Troutdale, Tualatin, West Linn, Wilsonville in Oregon, as well as Battle Ground, Camas, and Washougal in Washington.
It includes the unincorporated suburban communities in Oregon of Aloha, Beavercreek, Clackamas, Dunthorpe, Garden Home, Raleigh Hills, and West Slope. (source: Wikipedia/Greater Portland)
