Phillips, Dallas Fed assistant vice president and senior economist. "Looking at the past three months, job growth was 2.4 percent—moderately slower than the 3.1 percent in the first half of the year. Jo​​​​b growth has been broad-based across metro areas with particular strength in Houston, which has grown at an annual rate of 3.9 percent over the past three months and 3.6 percent so far this year."​​​​

Based on the forecast, the state will add 336,3​00 jobs this year. Employment in December 2018 will reach 12.7 million.​
