Rick Perry's Jobs Claim about Texas-Created Jobs Gets TWO Pinnochios

because, ya know, you can get numbers to come out how you want when you use your own *special* calculation, Bless His Heart.

There is a disconnect comparing the particular state and national employment data sets he used, because they use different sample sizes and measures of seasonal adjustments. The national estimate is independent of state estimates, and the BLS warns against aggregating state data or using state data to compare with national data.

Department of Labor Chief Economist Heidi Shierholz said Perry’s calculation makes conceptual sense, but the more comprehensive calculation is another measure that accounts for population growth. Using this calculation, which includes both private and public sector jobs, about a quarter of jobs in America came from Texas in 2000-2014.

If the state is seeing huge job growth and also getting far more of their population to work, that’s a “much better scene,” Shierholz said. “But they’re [Texas] not necessarily, within the huge state that they are, seeing a booming economy,” she said, noting that the employment-to-population ratio in Texas is still below it was before the recession.
