Region 5
Region 5Region 5 consists of one county, Lane. It is situated on the west side of Oregon, about midway down the state's coastline. Though lumber and wood products remains the largest single component of manufacturing, it has seen a 35 percent decline in employment between 2001 and 2013.

Meanwhile, the rest of Region 5's economy has become more diverse with gains in food products, health care and call centers making up for some of the losses in manufacturing. Since it is home to the University of Oregon and a Federal courthouse, government employment helps add stability to Lane County's economy.
