Unemployment Rate Drops For Sixth Straight Month In Texas

For the sixth consecutive month, Texas has seen a drop in its unemployment rate, according to figures released today by the Texas Workforce Commission. The seasonally adjusted rate dropped to 7.1 percent in February, down from 7.3 percent in January, and from 8.0 percent in February 2011.

"Texas' job growth over the past year points to a steady and sustained expansion of our state's economy," said Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) Chairman Tom Pauken. "Texas has experienced positive annual job growth for the last 22 months, and that's because Texas continues to be a great place to work and do business."

Texas added 27,900 nonfarm jobs in February, while 15,100 jobs in the rivate sector were added during the month.
