Workforce Diversity Project: Phase One

Released First Baseline Report
November 2014

In November of 2014, Partners in Diversity commissioned its first baseline report through the Portland State University Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies. The report established benchmarks against which regional progress could be measured and focused on the Portland area’s manufacturing, health care and skilled trades sectors. Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the American Community Survey, researchers identified the number and types of jobs that exist in the Portland area, as well as who fills them and salaries. They also looked at the job market forecast in these sectors.
