Recovery Well Underway

The Greater Houston Partnership released its April 2011 Economic Report for the Houston region.

The recovery is further along in Houston, and last year proved to be stronger than previously thought. The 10-county Houston metro area added 46,300 jobs last year, up from the previous estimates of 13,100 jobs.

Job growth occurred in nine of 11 sectors, with the largest percentage gains occurring in natural resources and mining, professional and business services, and educational and health services. The data suggest that Houston has recovered half of all jobs lost during the recession.
