I am trying to to sort multiple views output by a numeric custom field.
The numeric field was created by ACF and contains numbers from 0 to 999.

I've read in another post that there is a feature planned for setting a custom field to numeric in the "order by" dialog. But that feature is not ready yet.

How can I sort these views?

To filter your custom field in numeric format. Could you please try to add following code to your current theme's function.php file:

add_filter( 'wpv_filter_query', 'hook_search_custom_fields', 10, 2 );
function hook_search_custom_fields( $query_args, $view_settings ) {
    $query_args['orderby'] = array( 'meta_value_num');
    $query_args['meta_key'] = 'cf-job-growth-pct'; 
    $query_args['meta_type'] = 'numeric'; //
return $query_args;
