New data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that Dallas-Fort Worth picked up nearly 62,000 jobs in October, the most recent month available, to cut its year-over-year losses to fewer than 100,000 for the first time since the pandemic began.

The region had 89,800 fewer nonfarm jobs in October than a year earlier. Texas was down 498,700 jobs in that period.

Other major metro areas aren’t recovering as briskly as D-FW, though most similarly sized regions did add jobs.
