See Where Oregon Ranks for Singles in the US

Sunday, February 12, 2017

 

Oregon is ranked 22nd in the US for singles, according to a recent study done by WalletHub. 

“Besides your looks, personality and employment status, your location can influence your odds of finding a romantic partner. Everyone has different priorities when searching for love, but certain places are simply more conducive than others to dating,” said WalletHub. 

Oregon is ranked 19th for dating opportunities, 50th for dating economics and 4th for romance and fun. 

The Rankings

Oregon is ranked 22nd behind Illinois and Iowa who rank 20th and 21st respectively. Oregon ranks ahead of Pennsylvania and Arizona who rank 23rd and 24th respectively. 

Washington is ranked as the best state for singles, while Mississippi ranks as the worst state for singles. 

For the full rankings, see the map below.

The Method

WalletHub’s analysts compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across three key dimensions: 1) Dating Economics, 2) Dating Opportunities and 3) Romance & Fun.

They evaluated those dimensions using 23 relevant metrics. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with 100 representing the most favorable conditions for singles who are actively dating. Data for metrics marked with an asterisk (*) were available at the city level only, and in such cases we calculated a weighted average based on the size of the city population.

They then calculated the overall score for each state and the District based on its weighted average across all metrics and used the resulting scores to rank the states and the District accordingly.
