Texas not only leads the nation in job creation, it has more than doubled the next-best state’s total

Texas First is an ongoing series detailing the explosive growth of Texas’ economic landscape.

Texas added 660,000 new jobs in 2022—an increase of 3.6%, and more than any other state in the country last year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Texas’ statewide job growth was more than double the number of new jobs added in the second-ranked state, California.

The strong job growth in Texas is due to a number of factors, including the state’s low taxes, business-friendly environment, and growing population. Texas is also home to a diverse economy, with strong industries in manufacturing, technology, and healthcare.

The following graphic compares the job growth in Texas to other parts of the country in 2022:

The strong job growth in Texas is a boon to the state’s economy and its residents. It is also a magnet for businesses and workers from other parts of the country.

In addition to job growth, Texas also has a low cost of living, a growing population, and a diverse economy. These factors make Texas an attractive place to live and work.
