Metro Houston added 20,400 jobs in December, according to data released by the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) regarding the most recent data (Dec. 2021), Metro Houston added 20,400 jobs in December.

Those numbers rank as Houston’s best December for job growth on record. November 2021 also set a record for job growth. According to the Greater Houston Partnership and TWC data, fall 2021 (Oct, Nov and Dec) saw 80,800 jobs come to the Houston area, making it the fastest pace of job growth for any quarter on record, and the entire year of 2021 “the best year for employment growth in Houston’s history” with the region creating 151,800 jobs. That’s a 5.1% increase over 2020.

The fall has been particularly strong for Houston, with gains for October, November and December gains totaling 80,800 jobs. That’s the fastest pace of job growth for any quarter on record.

’21 will go down as the best year for employment growth in Houston’s history. The region created 151,800 jobs, a 5.1 percent increase over ’20. 

Cynics may say with all the jobs lost and businesses closed during the pandemic, it only makes sense that job growth numbers would be off the charts. But for those seeking employment, the reason for the growth doesn’t matter.
