Yeah I find the Carolina's numbers pretty surprisingly high, Oregon too but for different reasons. With all the gloom I hear about New York's economy, 7.8% is looking pretty good (1.1% away from "booming" Texas).

Louisiana is still experiencing "Recovering from Hurricane Katrina" growth... but it's total employment is still way down from pre-hurricane levels.

Unemployment rate is a poor proxy for how well a place is doing economically because trends in both labor force population and employment affect it. For example, Milwaukee has a pretty low unemployment rate... but it's not because it's growing jobs or losing few jobs... it's because it's labor force is shrinking so rapidly. The Carolinas have very high unemployment rates because their labor force populations continue to grow (since they've long been seen as desirable employment markets) despite catastrophic job loss. Few people who glance at unemployment rates dig beneath the surface to understand what affects these numbers. This is why I hate it when the media always uses unemployment rates to sell the economic narrative.

Ah yes. Good analysis. So what indicator if any do you think best tells the employment story?

A careful reading of the above entry reveals that we are still losing jobs on the whole....

Report: Stimulus created 205K Q1 jobs in Texas
Austin Business Journal

Texas added 205,000 jobs in the first three months of the year thanks to the stimulus bill, a report released by the White House on Friday claims.

The Council of Economic Advisors conducted the analysis released April 16. It follows a report that said the economic stimulus initiative created about 2.2 to 2.8 million jobs nationwide in the same period. Texas reported the second largest number of job increases after California, which added about 340,000.

The Central Texas unemployment rate fell for the second consecutive month in March, hitting about 7.1 percent from 7.3 percent in February. It reported 4,600 more jobs in March than February, but 500 less than a the same month in 2009.
