Oregon's economy has continued to recover from the great recession. Job growth in 2015 returned to mid-1990 levels with 3% annual growth leading to more than 57,000 new jobs. The office of Economic Analysis sees revenues growing strongly with corporate taxes and personal income taxes growing at double digit rates over the first four months of the 2015-2017 biennium.
