Change in Jobs by Sector, 2017

What does this measure?

The net growth or decline in jobs by sector, shown as a percentage gain or loss from 2001 to 2017.

Why is this important?

Job growth by sector is a key indicator of economic vitality and reveals how the structure of industry and the composition of employment in the region are changing.

How is the region performing?

Total jobs in the region increased by 14% from 2001 to 2017, slightly below the national increase of 18% and well above the statewide (excluding NYC) increase of 10%. Among sectors that employ the greatest share of workers, the largest rate increases from 2001 to 2017 were in Educational Services (49%) and Financial Activities (42%). In contrast, the Government, Information, and Manufacturing sectors all experienced decreases (of 3%, 30%, and 37% respectively).

At the county level, Ulster and Dutchess had the smallest total increase in jobs from 2001 to 2017 (both with increases of 7%), while Putnam and Orange had the largest increases at 26% and 22% respectively.

Notes about the data

County employment estimates are reported by place of work, not place of residence. Data for this indicator are expected to be released in the fourth quarter.
