AUSTIN -- The Texas economy added 19,100 seasonally adjusted total nonfarm jobs in June for a total of 371,000 jobs added since June 2013. Texas’ seasonally adjusted unemployment rate held steady in June at 5.1 percent, down from 6.4 percent a year ago. Texas’ unemployment rate remained below the nation’s June unemployment rate of 6.1 percent.

“The positive news continues as the Lone Star State’s jobs grew at 3.3 percent annually, with 371,000 jobs added over the last year,” said Texas Workforce Commission Chairman Andres Alcantar.

Seven of the 11 major industries in Texas showed employment increases over the month, led by a rise of 7,700 jobs in trade, transportation, and utilities. The industry added 90,400 jobs over the year as its annual growth rate reached 4.0 percent, the highest in the industry’s recorded history.

Education and health services continued to offer employment opportunities with the addition of 7,400 jobs in June. This industry has gained 52,600 jobs over the past 12 months, bumping its annual growth rate up to 3.6 percent, its highest level since June 2010.
