What we learned from the US Census Bureau’s latest estimates

A new Census Bureau report has revealed that US textile production grew by 3.5% in 2017, making it the fastest growing industry in the country.

That was followed by food processing, which grew by 0.7%.

“We were expecting the industry to grow at a faster rate than that, so we were not expecting that,” said Paul K. Taggart, a professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the report’s lead author.

“We think that we are seeing a positive trend.”

Industry growth, however, was tempered by some of the biggest challenges in textile production, such as the effects of the Superstorm Sandy, which impacted the nation’s supply chains.

The data also revealed that the apparel industry lost nearly 6 million jobs in 2017.

That’s a sharp drop from the previous year, when apparel manufacturing lost 6.6 million jobs, according to the report.

The report comes amid growing concerns about the economic health of the apparel and footwear industries.

In September, apparel manufacturing jobs declined by 3% to 2.9 million, the largest job loss in nearly five years, according the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Meanwhile, apparel sales fell by 0,000 to $6.9 billion in September, the smallest drop since October 2014.

And retail sales fell 1.4% to $16.7 billion.

The data shows that retail sales are still the largest source of jobs in the industry, with the industry losing almost 12% of its manufacturing jobs in 2016.

In the last year, apparel production has added more than 1.2 million jobs.

The manufacturing industry is the fastest-growing sector of the economy.

But the apparel sector has struggled with an aging workforce and declining profits.

The industry has been in recession since 2014, but is now expected to expand by 3%.

The report says the textile industry lost 629,000 jobs from 2016 to 2017.

The textile industry has lost more than 20% of all jobs since 1990, the last time there were official statistics.

The textile industry had been expanding at a slow pace since 2007, but the report says it is now seeing growth that is outpacing growth in other industries.
