Every year, EDCO collects and publishes statistical snapshots of the economy with trend information about employment, population, housing prices, higher education, utility costs, transportation, climate, and other frequently requested data for both the region and specific communities. To learn more, view our latest Central Oregon Profile. Additionally, EDCO researches and compiles the Top Employer lists for the region.

This year the top 50 private companies collectively employ 22,340 Central Oregonians, or roughly 20% of the region’s March 2024 annual average total non-farm employment of 107,550. EDCO’s regional list features private (for-profit and non-profit) employers, while those at the community level include both private and public employers.

Data for the lists are self-reported and not audited and should only be used as an informational guideline. Businesses are asked to provide the total number of employees, not full-time equivalency, during their most recent pay period or, for companies with seasonal patterns of employment, their seasonal high. Numbers only include employees working in Central Oregon and contain contractors or interns if they are full-time and long-term. Some businesses chose not to participate in these lists and are therefore excluded.
