Portland Metro Job Growth Report for February

Here's the latest news from the State of Oregon Employment Department:

The Portland Metro region created 26,800 jobs in 2014. The vast majority of those jobs were in these areas: 

  • Trade/transportation/utilities
  • Professional and business services
  • Leisure and hospitality
  • Health care
  • Manufacturing
Meanwhile, Multnomah County has been growing by about 10,000 jobs a year over the last four years -- an historically strong growth run for the County.

Clackamas and Washington County, while creating jobs, are growing noticeably slower than they did in the last economic recovery ten years ago.
