Relocate to Fort Worth

Economy

Located just west of Dallas, Fort Worth is the second largest city in the Metroplex. One of the numerous perks of Fort Worth is that it maintains a small-town ease and friendliness, while offering the growth opportunities of a large metropolitan area.

According to Sperling’s Best Places, “The unemployment rate in Fort Worth is 4.7 percent, with job growth at 2.98 percent. Future job growth over the next ten years is predicted to be 41.3 percent.”

The U.S. Metro Economies report, presented at the U.S. Conference of Mayors by IHS Global Insight (a Massachusetts-based information company), showed that 363 metropolitan areas in the United States are a driving force of the national economy.

In addition, the report showed the Dallas-­Fort Worth-Arlington economy ranked sixth in the nation at $440.1 billion in 2013. The fastest growers among the hundred largest metro areas were mostly in the West and South, where the real estate market recovery has fueled economic growth. Tourism is another important contributor to the economy. According to the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau, 8.5 million people visit the city of Fort Worth each year, which accounts for a $1.9 billion annual impact.
