Houston Employment Update via Greater Houston Partnership


Metro Houston created 114,400 jobs, a 3.7 percent increase, in the 12 months ending
November ’18, according to the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).
Five sectors accounted for three-fourths of all job gains—construction; administrative and support and waste management and remediation services; professional, scientific, and technical services; durable goods manufacturing; and health care and social assistance.
• TWC reports that only two sectors, accommodation, and food services, i.e. hotels, bars and restaurants, and information lost jobs.
• Houston’s unemployment rate was 3.8 percent in November, unchanged from 3.8 percent in October and down from 4.4 percent in November ’17.
