This and other great information about just how much Child Care affects Oregon's economy can be found in the recent study completed by Oregon State University titled  Economic Impact of Oregon's Child Care Industry. The report was produced through the Oregon Child Care Information Partnership with funding from the Oregon Employment Department.

  • Employs at least 14,420 Oregonians in 7,900 small businesses;
  • Keeps 90,297 parents on the job, earning $2.6 billion annually;
  • Enables the production of exports each year that support $5.75 billion in sales, 52,000 Oregon jobs and $1.99 billion in income; and
