Houston's job growth rates are a little above 3 percent per year while the national job growth rates are slightly more than 1 percent.

Houston's hospitality industry experienced the highest job growth at 3.9 percent. Utilities and transportation jobs experienced a 3.7 percent increase. Houston's education, manufacturing and health care services sectors did not experience such dramatic employment gains as the other Houston industries, they still had job growth rates above the national average.

Economists expect jobs in oil and gas production to be added at a steady rate of 1,000 positions per month. The job gains within the professional services and energy sectors are high-paying positions that make significant impacts on Houston's overall economy.
