Note

  • Display Note: Abstract: Over the past three years, the Dallas/Fort Worth Metropolitan Area, along with most other regions of the country, has seen some hard economic times. The tech wreck, the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks, and the national economic downturn have reduced the region's employment by about 100,000. We should keep in mind, however, that current payroll employment is about 2.8 million-indicating a fairly small job loss in percentage terms. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, discusses how allowing for the region's recent economic vicissitudes, the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex has been the most dynamic urban area in the nation since 1990. As the national economic recovery gains steam, the DFW Metroplex is sure to rebound in tandem.
