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 our region performing?

Total jobs in the region increased by 4% from 2001 to 2017, much lower than the increases of 19% for New York and 18% for the United States. The region experienced the most job gains in Educational Services (40%) and Natural Resources and Mining (40%). Over the same period, Manufacturing and Information jobs in the region both fell by 36% and 40%, respectively. Monroe County comprised nearly all Manufacturing job losses in the region, dropping by 47% between 2001 and 2017, as compared to a 0.4% decrease in the surrounding counties.

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.
