Dallas No. 1 for Small-Biz Job Growth


Dallas regained its spot as the nation’s No. 1 metropolitan statistical area for small-business job growth in October, according to the Dallas Business Journal.


Nationally, job growth remained steady, growing at 0.23 percent over the past 12 months, according to the study conducted by payroll services company Paychex and business analyst firm IHS.


Dallas has been the country’s star for several months, only missing the No. 1 spot as the top job creator in one month: September. Officials are attributing that to a random fluctuation in the market. In October, Dallas overtook Seattle.


That growth isn’t expected to stop. While index numbers can’t predict the future, Dallas is showing very positive small-business growth trends.


At Ebby Halliday Realtors, the strength of the Dallas economy is music to our ears. Simply put, we’re bullish on Dallas and the entire D-FW region.

Texas No. 1 for Jobs



The good news keeps coming for Texas. With 46,600 jobs added in July, the state ranked No. 1 nationwide in job growth, according to just-released data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.


Overall in July, 36 states and Washington, D.C., added jobs. Thirteen states lost jobs and one, Iowa, saw no change. Ohio saw the largest monthly decline, losing 12,400 jobs.


Texas has been No. 1 in jobs added three other times this year. Unlike some other states, Texas has seen job growth across all of its major industry groups.


Texas also leads the nation in job creation over the last 12 months with 396,200 jobs for an annualized rate of 3.5 percent.


In addition to significant job growth, Texas, and Dallas-Fort Worth in particular, offers affordable housing options. To learn more, visit the award-winning ebby.com.
