Introduction & Summary
Understanding Growth and Change
Among the Major Components of Employment:
Wage and Salary Employment,
Nonfarm Proprietors' Employment
and Farm Proprietors' Employment

This OR-REAP module is for tracking and analyzing the changing composition of employment for the regions, MSAs, and 36 Oregon counties.
