Central Oregon boasts a diverse mix of industries that create a solid employment foundation for the regional economy. As the region expands, there has been a shift from construction and government to gains in new industry sectors such as education, health, information and tourism. The information sector (software, IT services, data centers) has seen the biggest change - growing by 30% in the past 10 years. Tourism (leisure and hospitality) has also seen notable gains in the past 10 years.
