The United States is expected to generate 2.6 million jobs in 2014, says Stateline.

– Of the new jobs projected for 2014, Moody’s Analytics projects that almost 572,000 of them will be added in Texas and California, with 176,000 in Florida and 77,000 in Arizona.

– Western states are expected to have especially high growth rates: Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, Idaho and Utah are five of the top 10 states expected to see the highest rate of growth due to home construction, high tech and aerospace investment, and trade with Asia.

The fastest growing jobs nationwide are the fields of health care and construction.

North Dakota remains the fastest job creator in the United States due to its energy boom with a 3.6 percent growth rate, followed by Arizona, which grew at a 3 percent rate last year.

Texas already replaced all of its job losses from the recession in 2011, and the state should add 308,000 new jobs this year.
