The region’s economic climate gets generally good marks on a Portland Regional Chamber scorecard issued Tuesday but comes up short on some key measures of growth and affordability.

The scorecard is the first issued by the chamber. It plans annual follow-ups to track the region’s performance on measures such as employment, income, population growth, education, cost of living and innovation.

The various measures are stacked up against targets that mostly compare Portland’s statistics with national levels.

The scorecard shows that the region did well on employment and household income, educational attainment, venture capital investments and patents issued, but lagged on imports and exports, population growth, housing affordability, property taxes and the overall cost of living.
