Montgomery County Employment leads state, second in nation

County Employment and Wages in Texas - Third Quarter 2011

Posted: Apr 09, 2012 11:14 AM CDT
Employment rose in 22 of the 23 largest counties in Texas from September 2010 to September 2011, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported today. (Large counties are defined as those with employment of 75,000 or more as measured by 2010 annual average employment; comparable data for Brazos County were unavailable.) Regional Commissioner Stanley W. Suchman noted that three Texas counties ranked in the top ten for job growth nationwide. Montgomery County's 4.8-percent gain led the state and tied for the 2nd fastest growth in the nation. Also sharing top-ten national rankings were the Texas counties of Webb (4.4 percent, tied for 5th) and Fort Bend (4.2 percent, tied for 8th). (See table 1.)
