This January, the state's unemployment was 7 percent, but last January we had an unem[ployment rate of 8.3 percent.

 

State Economist Nick Bielichicks says 2014 is showing more job growth.

 

"Over the last twelve months Oregon added a lot of jobs.  Since January 2013, we added an impressive 43,800 jobs. The third fastest job growth since the late 1990's."

 

The major industries with the largest job gains were construction and hospitality and professional and business services.

 

The only industry to decline was financial activities.
