 Number of jobs located in Redmond’s Downtown and Overlake urban centers.

In 2010, Microsoft Corporation changed the way that it reports the location of employees in the central Puget Sound region. Microsoft also made a change in 2011 that specifically impacts employment counts in the Overlake urban center. Therefore, employment estimates prior to 2011 are not comparable to estimates from 2011 forward. Thus, the baseline year has been reset to 2011.

Downtown employment decreased slightly and Overlake employment increased slightly from 2012 to 2013. A larger area than the urban center, the Overlake neighborhood’s employment also increased slightly to 36,354 jobs. 

Employment in Redmond’s urban centers accounts for 44.5% of total citywide employment – a minor decrease from 2012.
