Change in Jobs by Sector, 2019

What does this measure?

The net growth or decline in jobs by sector, shown as a percentage gain or loss from 2001 to 2019.

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 17% from 2001 to 2019, below the national increase of 23% and above the statewide (excluding NYC) increase of 12%. Among sectors that employ the greatest share of workers, the largest rate increases from 2001 to 2019 were in Educational Services (53%) and Financial Activities (48%). In contrast, the Government, Information, and Manufacturing sectors all experienced decreases (of 2%, 29%, and 32% respectively).

At the county level, Orange and Putnam had the largest increases in jobs from 2001 to 2019 (both 27%), while Dutchess and Ulster (both 9%) had the smallest total increase in jobs from 2001 to 2019.
