Regional economist Damon Runberg says healthcare is a big employer in this region.

 

"We found in this survey there were 3 thousand vacancies at any given time for 2013 over the last year.  And some people may be surprised, maybe not, nearly 40 percent are in the healthcare or social assistance industires.  So a lot of healthcare jobs this year."

 

In this survey, central Oregon included not jsut Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson Counties, but also Hood River and Klamath Counties among others.

 

Central Oregon's average hourly wage was $13.84 an hour compared to a statewide average of $15.04 an hour.
