Houston Economic Update – August 2012

The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas business-cycle index indicates economic activity in the Houston metropolitan area grew at an annualized rate of 2.8 percent in June. Estimates of weak employment growth for June may be weighing on the index, but key area industries continue to perform well despite eroding national and international expectations. Real estate markets are improving and seeing strong activity levels, energy prices are mostly in healthy territory and retail indicators are looking strong. Thus, the outlook for Houston in the coming months remains positive.
