Texas Economy a Monthly Review
Texas Economy Monthly Review – It is no surprise to many of us who live and conduct business in the state of Texas that the economy is booming. Kendall County, Texas. “But when it comes to percentage growth, they’re moving to Boerne. Kendall County had the fifth largest growth of any county of any size in the country, adding 1798 residents just in one year, a 5% growth rate.” writes Jim Forsyth from 1200 WOAI.
“Texas statewide employment growth rate of 2.8 percent, or more exactly 2.809 percent, from March 2014 to March 2015 is the weighted average of employment growth rates for all Texas industries for the period. Weights are shares of jobs by industry. The contribution of each industry to the Texas statewide employment growth rate is equal to the employment growth rate of that industry multiplied by its share of Texas jobs. Table 4 shows Texas industries and the state’s government sector ranked by their contributions to Texas employment growth rates from March 2014 to March 2015. The state’s education and health services ranked first in contribution to statewide employment growth rate followed by trade, leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, and the construction industry. Figures 26 to 37 show trends in contributions of Texas industries to Texas job growth rates.” – The Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University.
