Texas Employment Analysis

( Data Date : May 2017 )

Texas Employment Data

Located in the Southwest region of the U.S., the Lone Star State is known for cattle, cotton, computers and oil. In the last decade, Texas’ economic growth has been supported by population in-migration, robust energy sector, and revived industrial activity in the Rio Grande Valley. Recent lower oil prices have created major job losses in mining and manufacturing sectors. Momentum of economic growth is expected to continue strong, but exposure to the volatile energy industry provides a factor of uncertainty.
