The Dallas-Fort Worth area added more jobs than any other metropolitan area in 2014, a feat it hadn’t achieved in at least two decades.  D-FW gained 136,900 jobs last year, followed by the New York area with 129,000 jobs, according to data released Wednesday by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Houston area was No. 3, with 120,600 jobs. The figures are not seasonally adjusted.  December was the first time that D-FW has ranked No. 1 in calendar-year net job growth since at least 1990, when the BLS began compiling comparable state and local records. Texas also led the nation in job creation last year, adding 457,900 jobs.  Bud Weinstein, an economist at Southern Methodist University, called D-FW’s 4.4 percent job growth rate last year “absolutely phenomenal.”   The 2014 job growth rates for both D-FW and Houston (4.2 percent) beat the state rate of 4 percent.
