That beats the state and national unemployment rates.

The El Paso metro area added 3,400 jobs through the first eight months of 2017, the gains driven by two sectors: education and health services, and leisure and hospitality.

El Paso’s gross domestic product, which traditionally has grown at a slower rate than other metro areas, surpassed U.S. metro-area growth in 2016, growing 2.2 percent.

Another bright spot: El Paso’s housing market.

Home sales totaled more than 7,600 in August, up 7 percent from a year ago. 

Sales continue to increase and are near all-time highs, according to the Fed.
