There’s no denying that Austin Texas has been growing fast over the last 10 years. We can see this on a daily basis with the increase in construction across the city but how fast is Austin projected to growing in the coming years?
Thanks to recent data from the Perryman Group, we know that Austin is projected to grow by 3.89% per year through 2023.
What does this mean for the city? 3.89% average growth per year means an overall increase of $30.7 billion in annual revenue.
“Almost 120,000 net new jobs are likely to be added (2.12% per annum growth), bringing wage and salary employment to nearly 1.2 million aggregate positions during the next five years. In particular, gains are projected to be high in the services sector, which is expected to add over 78,600 jobs by 2023, a 2.94% growth rate.” – Perryman Group
