Why would I get a population statistic for Oregon as 7X10^12? I ran the inquiry several times and it returned same number.

Hi Patrick,

What exactly do you mean by "freeform inquiry"? How are you running the "inquiry"?

Query is malformed, so it is misinterpreted, spaces are required around the state abbreviation

WolframAlpha["population of" <> " OR " <> "(US state)"]

Not

WolframAlpha["population of" <> "OR" <> "(US state)"]
