Median Wage for Young Adults in Oregon: Then and Now

The U.S. Census Bureau's report Young Adults Then and Now compares statistics for young adults (ages 18-34) across the most recent few decades. In short, the young adult population has declined, makes less money, is more likely to be unemployed, more likely to live with parents, and more likely to have a college degree. 

In Oregon, median earnings for young adults declined from $36,912 in 2000 to $32,813 in the 2009-2013 American Community Survey. Read the Census Bureau's report for more detail on other measures, like employment, education, and ethnicity.
