Texas Unemployment Rate Remains at 4.1 Percent

The Texas unemployment rate held steady for a second straight month in June at 4.1 percent. That's the lowest point since at least 1976.

The Texas Workforce Commission released the seasonally adjusted figures today. The jobless rate is down from 5.1 percent at this time last year.

The commission estimates Texas has added almost 214,000 jobs in the past 12 months.

The job increases were spread among many sectors. Leisure and hospitality added 3,800 jobs to top 3,700 in the past year. Construction added 3,400 jobs in June. Financial activities gained 1,100 jobs, while mining added 600 jobs and continues to lead all Texas industry sectors with the highest job growth rate. 

These are the preliminary June unemployment rates for local areas in Texas, with revised May figures in parentheses. The figures are not seasonally adjusted. The statewide unadjusted jobless rate was 4.6 percent.
