Personal income growth in Oregon is slipping. The latest statistics released by the Oregon Employment Department shows we are just above the middle of the pack among the states. “Oregon's per capita personal income ranked 30th among the states. We're quite a bit lower than our neighbors Washington and California, which ranked 10th and 12th and we're just above our neighbors Nevada and Idaho, which ranked 31st and 38th.” State Employment Economist Nick Beleiciks says net income among Oregonians is still lower than it was pre-recession levels, but some industries did show strong growth.
