However, this is where Kilgore, Gregg County's, employment patters diverge.  The next largest industries in terms of the county's job base - manufacturing and mining - are part of the goods producing sector.  Each accounts for approximately 10 percent of the county's total employment, well above employment levels in these key sectors at either the state or national level.
