There was a significant gap in Washington compared to Yamhill and Columbia in 1940 with a gap of approximately twice as much and it had widened to over 160,000 in 2000 due to significant increase in the number of people in Washington.At more detailed look at the graph reveals that the difference was less marked 1940, with just over 25,000 and 30,000 people live in Columbia and Yamhill respectively, while population in Washington was in number 75,000.
