Oregon Employment Analysis

( Data Date : July 2019 )

Oregon Employment Data

Located in the West region of the U.S., the Beaver State has made the transition from a resource-based economy to a more diversified manufacturing and marketing economy, with an emphasis on high technology, as exemplified by semiconductor production. Thriving tech development in Portland and other cities will remain a job magnet, along with health care and food services. However, rural Oregon counties have been generally left out of the shift to a new economy. (Source: Oregon Secretary of State)
