2010-2020 Multnomah/Washington Job Openings: 59% Will be in Jobs with Average Pay That Is Less than 60% of Median Family Income.

Readers will recall my prior post HERE showing that 66% of projected job openings in Clackamas County from 2010-2020 were projected to be for occupations where average salaries were below 2010 60% median family income.(HUD 2010 median family income was $71,200, so the 60% MFI threshold was $42,720 or $20.54 per hour)

I replicated the same analysis for the Washington and Multnomah Workforce area; my observations:
  1. In 2010, 56% of jobs in Multnomah and Clackamas County had average wages of 60% or less of 2010 HUD median family income.
  2. From 2010-2020 of the 30,866 projected annual job openings (new jobs or replacement of current workers) 18,132 (59%) will be for jobs that had 2010 average wages at or below 60% of HUD median family income.

  • In the Excel workbook, the occupation link in left column is active, clicking will provide MUCH more detail for that occupation, including current job openings in that occupation.
  • File is set up in landscape mode with legal paper size; printed document runs 22 pages.
  • Occupations are listed in descending order of the projected number of annual job openings.
Excel table with that data is HERE, and also embedded below.
