    The total population for the county hit 206,310, up from the 2012 count of 204,630. Population in nearby Josephine County stayed essentially flat at 82,815, up from 82,775 the prior year.
    Medford showed the greatest growth in the region, increasing by 375 people to a total of 75,920. The county's second-largest incorporated area, Ashland, was the only city in the two counties to lose population, dropping slightly, from 20,325 to 20,295.
    Overall, the population center estimates Oregon's population increased by more than 35,000 or about 1 percent in the past year, to 3.9 million. Most of the population growth occurred in seven counties: Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, Marion, Deschutes, Lane and Jackson.
