This is good news...

Austin adds jobs as jobless rate stabilizes

Quote:
The unemployment rate in Austin is stable at 6.6 percent with about 5,800 jobs added in February, according to the Texas Workforce Commission.

The regional figure compares favorably to the national employment rate of 9.7 percent and the state unemployment rate of 8.2 percent.

Strong job gains in government, hospitality, and education helped the Austin area achieve a positive monthly job growth rate for the first time since November 2009, according to the commission.

Economists forecast better 2011 for Austin

Economists forecast better 2011 for Austin — blog | Austin Business Journal
Quote:
• In regard to Growth Domestic Product (GDP) growth a year from now, most of the economists forecast a modest percentage increase between 2.7 and 3 percent. However, Saving from Texas A&M thinks it’ll be closer to 5.4 percent.

• Three of the economists pegged the inflation rate in the coming year at a nominal 1.3 percent. Saving, however, is forecasting 4.5 percent.

• The prime interest rate was forecast by all to hold relatively steady and be between 3.25 and 4 percent a year from now. It’s at 3.25 percent now.

• The rate for a 30-year, fixed mortgage was forecast by the group to be between 4.8 and 5.5 percent a year from now, only slightly higher than where it is now.

• The Austin area can expect to see the number of local jobs grow by about 2.6 percent in the coming year, three of the economists predicted. But again, Saving from Texas A&M strayed from the pack by forecasting job growth to be 6 percent.

• In regard to statewide job growth in the coming year, the economists project about 2 percent. Except Saving, who pegged statewide job growth in the coming year at 4.5 percent.
