Texas Weekly Employment Estimate

NOTE: As of Aug. 27, 2021, we are suspending publication of the TWEE as we work to improve its recent accuracy. For more information, please contact Jesus Cañas.
The Texas Weekly Employment Estimate (TWEE) provides a timely indication of job growth. It is based on high-frequency data on initial claims for unemployment insurance, Homebase data on hours worked at small firms, Google mobility data, debit/credit card spending, restaurant reservations and the number of drilling rigs. TWEE data are updated every Friday and reflect employment changes during the prior week.

Learn more about the TWEE and the methodology behind it.
