DFW recorded a net gain of 3,300 jobs in July, bringing the region 45,100 jobs short of pre-pandemic levels. From the previous month, employment saw little change and the unemployment rates in DFW, Texas, and nationwide all decreased to 5.3%, 6.0% and 5.7%, respectively. The top three positions posted were once again software developers, registered nurses, and heavy truck drivers — all of which saw an increase in postings from June. See this month’s DFW Labor Market Update for details and look for the August 2021 Update on October 13.

The DFW area continues to be one of the most affordable major metropolitan areas in the United States based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Emsi. See how it ranks to other major metropolitan areas in this Cost of Living Indicators Report.
