Ten percent of Oregonians reported on the 2020 Census that they have more than one racial identity. That was the 12th highest rate in the country and higher than in New York.

The Oregonian/OregonLive noted that phenomenon 20 years ago, when it reported that one of every seven babies born in Oregon in 1999 had parents of different races or one parent who was Latino and one who was not.
