Oregon Adds 11,000 Jobs in January

In January, Oregon’s nonfarm payroll employment grew by 11,000 jobs, following a revised loss of 1,700 jobs in December. Six industries each added at least 1,000 jobs in January. Strong gains in the goods-producing industries topped the list as manufacturing added 2,500 jobs and construction added 1,800. Four other industries added at least 1,000 jobs: retail trade (+1,600 jobs), professional and business services (+1,400), health care and social assistance (+1,400), and private educational services (+1,000). None of Oregon’s major industries cut a substantial number of jobs in January.

Oregon’s nonfarm payroll employment increased by 28,200 jobs, or 1.5 percent, since January 2018. This growth rate was in line with the most recent eight months in which annual gains averaged 29,000 jobs, but a deceleration from more than 40,000 jobs added during each of the prior five years.

In the past 12 months, transportation, warehousing, and utilities grew at the fastest rate of the major industries, expanding by 3,800 jobs or 5.9 percent. Construction, which grew very rapidly in recent years, cooled somewhat in the past 12 months, as it added 4,100 jobs or 4.0 percent. Manufacturing (+6,600 jobs, or 3.4%) was the only other industry that grew by well over 2 percent. Contributing to the state’s overall slowing were six of Oregon’s major industries whose employment was within 500 jobs of January 2018 levels. On the downside, retail trade (-1,800 jobs, or -0.8%) was the only major industry to cut jobs substantially in the past 12 months.

Durable goods manufacturing has accelerated during the past four months. The industry expanded rapidly over the past 12 months, up 4.5 percent since January 2018. These component industries each posted impressive gains in that time: machinery manufacturing (+1,100 jobs, or 8.0%), primary metal manufacturing (+600 jobs, or 7.2%), semiconductor and electronic component manufacturing (+1,500 jobs, or 5.1%), and transportation equipment manufacturing (+500 jobs, or 4.2%).
