Metro Regions Jobs Report
A report released today by our friends at Garner Economics notes a slow down in the number of US metro regions that added jobs in September. Only one more region added jobs in September compared with August. In September, 168 metro regions were experiencing year over year job growth while 193 were losing jobs compared with the same period last year.
The report also ranks regions based on how current employment compares to their pre-recession employment peek. Texas has the most metro regions in the top quartile of that list while California and Florida have the most metros that in the bottom quartile.
