Change in Jobs by Sector, 2020

What does this measure?

The net growth or decline in jobs by sector, shown as a percentage gain or loss from 2001 to 2020.

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?

Despite the impact of COVID in 2020, total jobs in the region increased by 7% from 2001 to 2020, less than the national increase of 15% but greater than the statewide (excluding NYC) increase of 2%. The largest rate increases from 2001 to 2020 were in Educational Services (40%) and Financial Activities (35%). In contrast, the Information and Manufacturing sectors experienced decreases of 37%, and 36% respectively.

At the county level, Orange and Putnam had the largest increases in jobs from 2001 to 2020 (17% and 15% respectively), while Dutchess and Ulster experienced 1% and 2% decreases in total jobs from 2001 to 2020 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.
