​​​AUSTIN – Texas' seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 3.7 percent in April, returning to an all-time low last held in December 2018, reports the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).

Last month marked the 108th consecutive month of annual nonfarm employment growth as 28,900 seasonally adjusted positions were created.

"Our state’s ongoing success is linked to the innovation and competitiveness of employers in a range of industries providing Texans more opportunities to demonstrate their world-class skills," said TWC Chair and Commissioner Representing Employers Ruth R. Hughs.

The Texas metro with the lowest nonseasonally adjusted unemployment rate was Midland at 1.7 percent. McAllen-Edinburg-Mission had the highest at 5 percent.

The mining and logging industry saw the most seasonally adjusted growth in employment from April 2018 to April 2019, growing 6.8 percent. The information industry was the only sector to see a drop in employment, falling 0.7 percent.

The Real Estate Center has more employment data going back to 1976 on its website.​
