BEAUMONT-PORT ARTHUR REGION ECONOMIC AND LABOR MARKET PROFILE


BEAUMONT-PORT ARTHUR REGION SUMMARY KEY FINDINGS The Situation The regional employment base never recovered from the Great Recession, and it was hard-hit by the Pandemic—faced with the double whammy of the economic shutdown and the impact of sluggish demand for oil. Though the manufacturing and construction sectors grew in the years leading up to the Pandemic, the healthcare and retail sectors contracted, which was unusual in a region that was adding population. All four of these primary sectors contracted during the Pandemic and are expected to lose additional jobs over the next five years, except healthcare, which is expected to experience modest gains. This past performance and the future prospects of the primary industries are causes for concern. Persistently high unemployment, even during a historically long period of expansion in other parts Texas and the US, increases the risk of unemployed workers dropping out of the labor force completely or seeking employment in areas of higher economic opportunity.

Economic Drivers The Beaumont-Port Arthur region has a welldefined cluster of activities related to the petrochemical industry and maritime ports. This specialization can be seen in the regional industry and occupational strengths as well as workforce demand. The region’s other economic drivers include healthcare and nonresidential construction.

Workforce Demand Middle-skill jobs—those that require at least a high school diploma but less than a four-year degree— hold the largest share of the employment base, accounting for 42 percent of all jobs in 2020. However, the number of high-skill jobs has been growing is creating opportunity for more workers with higher

levels of educational attainment. Middle-wage jobs— those that pay, on average, between $15 and $45 per hour—accounted for 65 percent of all jobs in 2020. The share of middle-wage jobs has been declining and is expected to continue as low-wage and high-wage jobs gain ground. A wide range of middle and highskill jobs that pay more than $15 an hour is expected to be high in-demand over the next five years. These include various occupations in business and operations; education and training; healthcare; computer and mathematical; and skilled trades and production. Most of the high-skill occupations face below average automation risk; middle-skill occupations are more likely to face higher than average automation risk.

Educational Infrastructure and Alignment The region has more than 30 school districts and 3 public higher education institutions. Of the nearly 5,000 high school graduates from regional school districts that can be tracked, 70 percent are employed in Texas in the fall semester after graduation. Almost two-thirds of these recent graduates are employed in retail or accommodations and food services. The top destinations for the 60 percent of regional high school graduates that enroll in higher education are Lamar University, Lamar Institute of Technology, and Lamar State College. In other words, many high school graduates stay local and either work, go to college, or both. Lamar University is the largest source of degrees in the region, but Lamar Institute of Technology and Lamar State College are also important sources of talent. Together, these public institutions graduate more than enough students to fill entry-level openings requiring postsecondary degrees. The degrees’ fields of study align fairly well with the career clusters of the occupations that require them. It should be noted that only about one-third of the students at Lamar University are from the region and may be less likely to seek employment in the region upon graduation.

SUMMARY OF FINDINGS Beaumont-Port Arthur region had an • The employment base of 186,000 in 2020. Since its peak in 2008, the number of jobs in the region declined by 3 percent between 2008 and 2019 and another 4 percent during the first year of the Pandemic.

contrast to the State and the US, which had • Inrecovered from the Great Recession by 2013, the

Beaumont-Port Arthur never did recover the jobs lost. While the US overall experienced a historically long period of expansion, the region experienced a period of employment stagnation.

largest industry sectors in the region are • The healthcare, manufacturing, and retail trade.

The largest sources of growth over the next five years are expected to be accommodation and food services; education; and professional, scientific, and technical services.

to the Pandemic, the region’s top job • Prior gainers were construction; accommodation

and food services; and manufacturing. The top job losers were other services; healthcare; and management of companies and enterprises.

the Pandemic, construction; • During accommodation and food services; and

manufacturing were the top job losers. Finance and insurance; agriculture, and

government were the only sectors that gained jobs between 2019 and 2020.

quotients (LQs) measure the share • Location of local industry employment relative to the

nation. A high location quotient can be an indicator of a potential competitive advantage. In the Beaumont-Port Arthur region, the construction, manufacturing, and oil & gas sectors have above average LQs. Looking within these sectors, the region shows distinct strengths in petrochemical manufacturing, oil & gas pipelines, and transportation and support activities related to the region’s ports.

sectors that are expected to grow the • The most and pay the best wages are professional,

scientific, and technical services; education; and healthcare. Though manufacturing is one of the largest sectors in the region and pays some of the highest wages, the sector is not expected to gain jobs between 2021 and 2026.

this region, the largest job center is • Within Beaumont with higher concentrations of jobs at the corners of the “Golden Triangle.”

largest employers include regional • The hospitals, Jefferson County, Lamar University, Texas Department of Criminal Justice, and various refineries and manufacturers.

Location quotients (LQs) are ratios of an area’s share of employment by industry relative to the US’s. If an LQ is equal to 1, then the industry has the same share of its area employment as it does in the nation. An LQ greater than 1 indicates an industry with a greater share of the local area employment than is the case nationwide.

SUMMARY OF FINDINGS Beaumont-Port Arthur region has a labor • The force of almost 194,000 individuals who are

either employed or actively looking for work. Though the number of participants plunged during the economic shutdown in the first months of the Pandemic, it had almost recovered by May 2021. Within the region, Hardin and Newton Counties were still experiencing the largest declines in labor force participants while Tyler and Jefferson Counties were closest to recovering to their pre-Pandemic levels.

the number of participants in the • Although labor force had stabilized, unemployment still

remained extremely high in May 2021 with Jasper, Jefferson, and Newton Counties facing unemployment rates above 10 percent.

back to 2008, the Beaumont-Port • Looking Arthur region’s unemployment rate was consistently above the State of Texas’ and the US’ rates, indicating a degree of labor market distress prior to the Pandemic.

of characteristics of the working • Inageterms population (age 25 to 64), the BeaumontPort Arthur area has a relatively large Black

or African American population both in comparison to the state and the US but has a much smaller Hispanic/Latino population in comparison to Texas. The age distribution of the regional working age population is similar to that of the nation, which skews older than that of the state. The region has a much larger share of workers with only a high school diploma and with some college or an associate’s degree. Only 22 percent of the population 25 to 64 in the labor force has a bachelor’s degree or higher, which is significantly lower than that of the state and the nation.

of the educational requirements • Aof comparison jobs and the educational attainment of the

population 25 to 64 in the labor force shows that more than two-thirds of the jobs in the region require a high school diploma or less. Yet, 57 percent of the workers have more than a high school diploma. This means than some workers with postsecondary education are working in jobs for which they are overqualified. The number of workers with a bachelor’s degree or higher is fairly well-aligned with the number of jobs that require such a credential.

Of the students that can be tracked (e.g. they are enrolled in a Texas public college or university and/or working in Texas), about 70 percent of these students are employed in Texas in the fall semester after their graduation. Of these students who are employed after graduation, about 60 percent work in retail or accommodations and food services. Sixtyone percent of these graduates enroll in a Texas public college or university. The top institutions that these students enroll in are Lamar University, Lamar Institute of Technology, and Lamar State College.

region has three public higher education • The institutions and four other private institutions. Over the last three years, these institutions have conferred an average of 7,100 degrees. Three-fourths of these degrees are earned at Lamar University and about two-thirds of these degrees are graduate degrees.

the number of annual openings • Comparing of entry-level occupations that require postsecondary education to the number of

degrees or completions in related fields can be an indicator of the alignment of the regional talent pipeline with regional jobs. The inclusion of Lamar University in the total number of completions provides a picture of a deep bench of talent to support all career clusters. However, Lamar University attracts students from across Texas, many of whom will move out of the area upon graduation. Without Lamar University, the regional talent pipeline may have significant shortages related to education; health science; and business and oversupplies in manufacturing and law and public safety. Note that the annual openings of transportation, distribution, & logistics includes truck drivers, which requires a commercial drivers license. These can be acquired through a postsecondary degree program or nondegree program. Likewise, architecture and construction includes heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers, which can acquire needed certification through a degree or a nondegree program. Thus, these completions in these two areas are likely understated as nondegree completions are not included in these totals.
