Notes: This table shows the number of nonfarm jobs in Texas, without regard to a worker's place of residence.. Indented subcategories do not always include all employees in a category, so the sum of shown subcategories will not necessarily equal the total category. Employment estimates are preliminary and subject to revision. Employment figures in this table are not seasonally adjusted.
