​​​DALLAS – North Texas' job making machine is still running at full speed ahead.

More than 119,000 new jobs were added in the Dallas-Fort Worth area during the 12-month period ending in February 2017. The total employment base in North Texas grew by about 3.5 percent.

That's second only to the New York City metro area for total employment gains during the year, according to the latest data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

DFW's employment market has been growing by more than 100,000 new jobs a year for the last few years.

The increase in employment has driven the commercial construction boom and has made the area's housing market one of the tightest in the country. 

More than 200 people a day are moving to North Texas, many of them seeking new jobs, economists say.
