DFW Labor Market Update

DFW posted a net gain of 28,600 jobs in March –the first employment gain of 2021– raising employment to near-November levels, 115,600 jobs short of pre-pandemic employment. Unemployment rates improved in DFW, Texas, and the U.S. nationwide, at 6.5%, 7.2%, and 6.2%, respectively, the lowest rates to date in 2021. The monthly volume of job postings reached a new record high since before the pandemic. See this month’s DFW Labor Market Update for details, and look for our April 2021 update on June 9.

See how many workers in professional occupations live within a 15-, 20-, 25-, 30-, 45-, and 60-minute radius of major DFW cities in the latest issue of The Connection: Economic Development and Our Community. If you don’t see your city or would like the chart file, send us a request and we’ll be happy to help!
