By a number of economic measures, Portland-metro’s regional economy continued to rebound in 2016. A growing economy, increasing jobs and wages and high productivity are significant strengths. As Portland-metro continues to grow, it is undergoing fundamental economic shifts that are good news for some, but prosperity is not equally spread across the region. That is the challenge ahead: How can we better share prosperity across all corners and among all residents of Portland-metro? The Value of Jobs Coalition has tracked the health of Portlandmetro’s economy in an annual Economic Check-Up report since 2010 — through the dark years of the Great Recession and into a slow-moving job recovery that finally picked up pace in 2014. Today, the Portland-metro job market remains strong with a total of 165,950 new jobs added since the depth of the recessionary losses. In a change from last year’s Economic Check-Up, nearly every industry, with the exception of manufacturing, has recovered the total number of jobs lost in the recession.

Oregon is a state divided. Not one divided based on ideology, but divided by geography and land use. More than 83 percent of Oregon's population is concentrated in the state's eight metropolitan statistical areas. Rural cities and towns stand as islands of development surrounded by a sea of forest, farms, and rangeland. This distinct urban/ rural divide is in a large part due to Oregon's strict land use planning laws, which encourage density in urban settings over suburban sprawl into rural communities. Oregon's rapid job growth has received significant attention as employment growth ranked second fastest in the United States over the past year. Much of the current economic expansion is being driven by job growth in the state's major urban centers, while rural Oregon continues its long and slow recovery from the devastating recession. Why is the pace of recovery so much slower in rural Oregon? What economic challenges do rural Oregonians face?
