Eastern Oregon is more desert-like and dry, while the Willamette Valley is fertile and lush. Looking for metropolitan life? Head to Portland. Seeking rugged adventures? Head down to Mt. Hood.

Oregon's economy is expected to improve and jobs to increase through 2012, according to an executive summary prepared for the Oregon government, in part due to Oregon's strong trading ties with China. Information technology and financial services continue to grow, both strong candidates for trade school programs. The population is growing; the U.S. Census Bureau lists the resident population as 3,825,657 in 2008. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates the annual mean wage for all occupations in 2009 at $42,450.
