Industrial Growth in North Texas

The Texas summers are not the only thing heating up in North Texas.  The region’s economy is growing at a blistering pace.   DFW is growing faster than the nation – about 2 percent points faster.  This outsized performance is only possible with robust labor force expansion.  The DFW labor force increased 3.1 percent over the past year, while the sharing of people working or seeking employment was little changed.
