Mercado laboral regional

The Gulf Coast Workforce Development Area is the largest of twenty-eight workforce development areas in Texas with a civilian labor force that is more than 3 million strong. El área de Desarrollo de Fuerza Laboral de la Costa del Golfo de México representa una fuerza laboral que es mayor que la de treinta y cinco estados y siete estados más pequeños combinados. The area's civilian labor force has grown by nearly 700,000 since 2000 expanding at an average annual growth rate of 2.1 percent.

The Gulf Coast region's unemployment rate mirrored the state's rate and remained considerably lower than the nation's rate throughout 2012. By December it had fallen considerably to 6.0%, the lowest since December 2008. Many areas of the nation are not experiencing the same level of economic recovery we're seeing in Texas and the Gulf Coast. The unemployment rate in the Gulf Coast region should continue to steadily decline throughout 2013. Para obtener índices actuales haga clic en: Otros índices locales
