    January 18, 2013


    The Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown Metropolitan Statistical Area added 84,500 net new jobs in the 12 months ending December ¡¯12, according to data released today by the Texas Workforce Commission. The Greater Houston Partnership official employment forecast called for the region to create 84,600 net new jobs in ¡¯12. Growth in the region fell short of the Partnership¡¯s forecast by only 100 jobs, essentially a rounding error in an economy with 2.7 million in total nonfarm payroll employment.


    Details of the job gains and losses reported for ¡¯12 can be found below. A more detailed analysis of the employment data will be available in the February ¡¯12 issue of Houston: The Economy at a Glance.
