Texas Economy in Focus
Texas is a unique state. Its enormous size, diverse population and vast natural resources have shaped it into an economic powerhouse that plays a significant role in the nation and the world.
Economic growth plays a critical role in the well-being of all Texans by generating jobs and prosperity. One of the responsibilities of the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts is to analyze factors affecting the state’s economy—keeping our fingers on the pulse of the state, to detect changes as they occur and to identify trends that will affect our future.
