There was a significant lag in Texas' jobs numbers for January, but we can still learn something from the January jobs report.
The Workforce Commission says employers added 37,000 jobs in November, and Dr. Perryman says there were 336,000 jobs created over the last 12 months.
The Labor Department reports employers added 130,000 jobs last month, short of the 160,000 most experts had predicted, while the jobless rate remains at 3.7%.
Dr. Perryman weighs in on Hurricane Harvey's trek through Texas that lead to a net negative when it came to the September jobs report from the Workforce Commission.
The 20,000 jobs created by employers in July according to the Texas Workforce Commission was half June's tally, but Dr. Perryman says that does little to halt the state's job growth.
