The Charlotte metro area added 5,100 jobs during the past year, good enough to place the region in the top 50 nationally in jobs created.

The Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton area didn't fare nearly as well, according to figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The area lost 1,000 jobs between January 2010 and 2011, placing it 338th among 372 metropolitan areas nationwide.

A total of 266 metropolitan areas gained employment between January 2010 and January 2011, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Ninety-three metro areas suffered declines, and 13 were unchanged.

Two Texas markets - Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston - led the way with respective increases of 63,600 and 56,600 jobs.

Sacramento was saddled with the biggest decline, losing 14,500 jobs in the past year. Atlanta and Las Vegas came next, with respective declines of 12,300 and 9,500.
