JOB GROWTH CONTINUES TO IMPROVE

Metro Houston added 6,700 jobs in May, the gain on par
with the region’s 20-year average of 6,800 jobs for the
month. Houston added 45,300 jobs in the 12 months
ending in May ’17, a significant improvement over the
comparable period a year earlier, when the region added
only 4,000 jobs.

Five sectors accounted for the bulk of Houston’s gains over
the past 12 months—employment services, public
education, food services and drinking places, health care,
and fabricated metal products. Collectively, they added
48,800 jobs.

Five sectors accounted for the bulk of
Houston’s job losses—construction,
machinery manufacturing, wholesale
trade, mining and logging, and architectural
and engineering services. Collectively,
they lost 18,200 jobs. Smaller
gains and losses were scattered across
the remaining sectors.
