Future Hiring Survey Responses With a New Twist

We recently posted a summary of results from the second Future Hiring Survey conducted by the Oregon Employment Department. Survey results showed that just less than one-half of the employers who provided a reason that might prevent them from hiring over the next six months cited factors relating to poor economic conditions.

With the help of a website for creating graphics (, we took all the responses from employers to this survey question and constructed a visual representation of them. The more often a word appeared in employer survey responses, the larger the word appears in the graphic. As you can see, the economy is by far the most frequently used by employers related to what may hinder more hiring. However, many other words also popped up frequently in the survey.

For more information on our Future Hiring Survey, read last month's press release.
