Oregon hi-tech trends

Mike Rogoway has really good update on the Oregon high-tech sector in The Oregonian, and then asks the question of whether or not this growth is impacting the housing market. The answer to that question is no, or at least only a tiny amount, despite some of the conversations I’ve been apart of. Tech growth is having a bigger impact in San Francisco and Silicon Valley as Tech Crunch’s Kim-Main Cutler has written, and to which she spoke at Metro’s housing panel the other week. However that’s due to high-tech being a much bigger industry in the Bay Area than it is here in Portland and Oregon more broadly. Even as Oregon high-tech job growth has been solid in recent years, in Portland it accounts for about 10% of all jobs and 8.5% of the growth from 2012 through 2015. Which brings us to the Graph of the Week, which compares hardware and software high-tech growth across different counties.
