A vibrant community is almost always rooted in a solid economic base. Without it, efforts to achieve excellence in all facets of life may falter. Information in this category covers many dimensions of a regional economy: Jobs, earnings at those jobs, income levels, taxes and revenue, data on local firms, and the distribution of income. This category paints a fairly detailed picture of the Yakima County economy.

A full definition of each indicator, as well as its relevance to Yakima County, can be found in the More Information section. The data themselves are available in a spreadsheet via the Download Data tab.
