The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has stated that only 35 metro areas throughout the nation have an economy that is finally rebounding from the recent economic recession, while 65 metro areas are continuing to suffer from the lasting effects of the downturn.
Fortunately for local job seekers, Dallas is one of the few metro areas that are continuing to add jobs, and the city has experienced the second-highest employment increase in the nation when compared to last year.
The Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington area added 28,700 jobs between August 2009 and August 2010, which is an increase of 1 percent. That employment gain is second only to New York, which added 42,200 jobs throughout the last year.
During August, the Dallas area’s unemployment rate decreased to 8.4 percent after remaining at 8.5 percent for two consecutive months, keeping it well below the national average of 9.6 percent.
The Dallas area had a total non-farm employment of 2,868,900 workers during August, which is up from 2,868,700 workers during July and a 1 percent increase from last year.
Dallas isn’t the only metro area in Texas that continues to fare well despite the economy. The BLS has declared that Austin also has a recovering economy, as the city has seen a 2.5 percent increase in employment when compared to last year, which is the largest percentage increase in the nation.
On the opposite side of the spectrum, Detroit and Dayton top the list of the many metro areas that are continuing to decline, as each city has continued to lose jobs for 10 years in a row.
