Oregon's growth was dominated by computer and electronics manufacturing, led by one company in particular: Intel.
Intel (Fortune 500) has been expanding its chip manufacturing plants, as well as its research and development operations in the state. It now operates six campuses west of Portland and employs about 17,000 people there, making it Oregon's largest private employer. ,
Oregon's manufacturing output has grown so rapidly, it has surpassed even traditional Rust Belt states like Indiana and Michigan.
Hobbled by a still-wounded finance sector, Connecticut is the nation's slowest-growing state.
