Oregon Metro Economies Account for 86% of State Domestic Product.

Oregonian has story HERE detailing how long it will take for metro area economies to regain jobs. Story doesn't include but HERE is link to US Conference of Mayor report that was source of data.

Oregon Metro Areas Account for 86% of $174.2 Billion 2010 Oregon State Domestic Product; Portland Metro Share Was 62%.
Buried in report on page 70 is data showing the share that each metro area contributes to state economy.  I took data and reformatted and table below shows that metro areas in Oregon represented 86% of the total statewide gross domestic product, with non metro areas representing only 14%. The data further shows that the Portland area was responsible for 62% of the statewide domestic product. [Portland metro data is ONLY for Oregon share of metro area].
