The Corpus Christi economy had held up in the month of August before Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the Coastal Bend. Employment growth spread across most industries, while the unemployment inched up slightly. Home construction remained active before the storm, and the volume of home inventories expanded further to 7.4 months.
NOTES: We have joined Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend and Corpus Christi Economic Development Corporation in a monthly report on economic conditions of the region, Coastal Bend Economic Briefing. This webpage will soon be replaced by the new report!
