 In general, higher payrolls tend to track higher employee/population ratios. The one exception is 97403, which combines the University of Oregon and Glenwood areas, where there the job/person ratio is low, but the payroll/job ratio is high.

For the numbers, please see http://lindholmcompanyblog.com/?p=3688.

This difference might go a long way toward explaining Eugene’s divided politics, see http://lindholmcompanyblog.com/?p=3482.

These numbers include only private sector, not government, employment. In particular, the University of Oregon and federal, state, county and city jobs are not included.

Most of these ZIP Codes include some rural population. Most of the businesses are in the urban portions of these regions.

The latest available official data on firms, jobs, and payroll at the ZIP Code level  is from 2008 and for population at the ZIP Code level, it is 2000.
