The state of Texas added 26,500 jobs to the economy during the month of December, according to ADP’s monthly Regional Employment Report. That total is 3,244 higher than the number added in December 2016.
One of the more interesting aspects of this data is that goods-producing jobs increased by 40% year over year, versus the service-producing jobs, which increased by 22% during the same time period. In December 2007, goods-producing jobs had increased by 25% year over year, while service-producing jobs were up 19% over the same time period.
Throughout the year, we’ll continue to offer economic comparisons from the Great Recession and recent data.
