Dallas regained its spot as the top metropolitan statistical area for small business job growth in October.
Nationally, job growth remained steady, growing at just 0.23 percent over the past 12 months. Still, the U.S. is maintaining an index number of 100.84, indicating a strong job climate, according to the study conducted by payroll services company Paychex and business analyst firm IHS.
However, Dallas has been the country's star for several months, only dropping its ranking as a top job creator in September. Officials are attributing that to a random fluctuation in the market.
