The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that Florida had a net gain of 214,372 private sector jobs in the last three months of 2017. It was the largest net job gain in any state, according to federal data.
It also contrasts with the federal agency's latest quarterly report on "business employment dynamics," which showed that Florida leads the nation in net private sector job losses in the third quarter of 2017, with a decline of about 134,000 jobs.
Economists and state officials attributed Florida's job losses during the third quarter to the impact of Hurricane Irma, which hit the state in September. They predicted that Florida's job growth would likely rebound, which was verified in the new report.
The survey measures net job creation over a three-month period by comparing companies that expand or open up against companies that close or shut down.
The new report underscored the nature of Florida's post-hurricane recovery, with the 214,372 net jobs created being the state's highest quarterly total based on federal agency data dating back to 1992.
The state's 601,026 new jobs in the fourth quarter of 2017 were also high, according to federal labor statistics. The quarterly job creation was offset by the loss of 386,654 jobs during that period, the data showed.
Florida's job growth at the end of last year was in line with the nation. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a net gain of nearly 1 million private sector jobs nationwide in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The new report showed 49 states gaining private sector jobs in the last quarter of 2017. The third quarter report showed that Florida and 26 other states lost jobs.
Florida, the country's third-largest state, also compared well with its big-state rivals in the new survey.
Only California, with the creation of more than 1 million jobs in the private sector, surpassed Florida. But the nation's largest state lagged behind Florida in net job gains for the quarter, with 134,282, according to federal data.
Texas created more than 641,000 jobs in the fourth quarter of 2017, with a net gain of 103,721 jobs. New York had a net gain of more than 26,000 jobs, based on a total of 483,363 new jobs.

The city's financial figures, job creation rates and economic stability already indicated this growth, and after the official release of the figures, areas that live especially off tourism have a lot to celebrate, because this growth doesn't stop there.

The trend is that 2018 has an even higher numberThis is due to the new investments and attractions that are being created in the city, as well as the constant expansion in infrastructure involving: airports, a train link between Miami and Orlando, Universal's new acquisition of lots that will allow the park to grow with resorts, restaurants and new attractions for its visitors, and much more.
