TEXAS - Texas added 19,900 jobs in July 2013 with month-over-month increases seen in five of the state’s 11 major industries, according to the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). The state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate remained at 6.5 percent.

All metropolitan rates reported by the TWC are not adjusted for seasonal trends. For comparison, the state recorded a 6.7 percent rate, not seasonally adjusted, which is down slightly from 6.9 percent in June 2013.

Meanwhile, the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan statistical area recorded a 6.5 percent rate, not seasonally adjusted, which is down from 6.7 percent in June 2013 and from 7.3 percent in July 2012.

Statewide, the McAllen-Edinburg-Mission MSA had the highest unemployment rate at 11.3 percent, and the Midland area again had the lowest rate at 3.5, not seasonally adjusted.

Both the state's and the Houston area's rates remain well below the national unemployment rate, which was 7.4 percent seasonally adjusted and 7.7 percent not adjusted in July 2013.
