In all private education — including post-secondary — payroll employment grew in Oregon from 18,950 in 2001 to 23,276 in 2006, an increase of nearly 23%. The industry provided over $650 million in payroll in 2006. Statewide, 36% of private education employment is in elementary and secondary schools, 36% is in colleges or universities, and the remaining 28% is employed in vocational, technical training and educational support services. The counties with the highest average employment in private education are Multnomah, Washington, Marion, Yamhill, Clackamas and Lane.
