DeWitt County unemployment rate improves

 

DeWitt County’s unemployment rate continues to improve and is still better than the state average. With a labor force of 10,086 people reported in February, 9,635 were employed and 451 were unemployed. That results in an unemployment rate of 4.5 percent. A year ago at this time the rate was 4.9 percent.
 
In comparison to area counties, the rates were: Lavaca, 4.1 percent; Karnes, 5.1 percent; Goliad, 4.4 percent; Gonzales, 4.2 percent; and Victoria, 4.6 percent.
 
 Texas employers added 37,600 seasonally adjusted total nonfarm jobs in February. Those additions, coupled with a revised gain of 43,000 jobs in January, boosted annual growth to 314,200 jobs in Texas.
 
Texas’ seasonally adjusted unemployment rate held steady at 5.7 percent in February. It was down from 6.5 percent in February 2013, and was a full percentage point below the nation’s February unemployment rate of 6.7 percent.
