Texas Economy is GREAT! and I'll make sure it stays that way.

The 50 state economies, from worst to first - No. 3: Texas

Since the discovery of vast oil reserves around the turn of the 20th century, Texas has been an economic powerhouse. Energy continues to be a huge part of the Texas economy, but many industries have a large presence in the state. Here's how Texas did on our measures:

  • Texas had a 3.3 percent increase in nonfarm payroll jobs...
  • The working-age population grew by 1.3 percent
  • Exports grew by 4.1 percent to about $279 billion, solidifying Texas' lead in international exports among the states.
