Lewisville leads Texas in labor force population

DALLAS (HomeArea.com) – Lewisville leads the state as the city with the largest percent of its population in the labor force, at 77.8 percent, according to rankings from HomeArea.com.

The Woodlands had the biggest increase—12.4 percent—in labor force participation. Richardson had the largest decrease at -11.1 percent.
Statewide, the percent in labor force from the latest estimates is 64.3 percent, down 0.2 percent from 64.5 percent the year before.
The rest of Texas' top ten rankings are:
  • Carrollton, 75 percent;

  • Irving, 74.9 percent;

  • Austin, 73.7 percent;
