NYS Adds 18,800 Private Sector Jobs in July 2017, Sets New Record Employment High

In July 2017, New York State’s private sector job count increased by 18,800, or 0.2%, to 8,100,400, a new record high, according to preliminary figures released today by the New York State Department of Labor. Since the beginning of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s administration, New York State’s economy has added more than one million private sector jobs and experienced employment growth in 67 of the past 79 months. In July 2017, New York’s statewide unemployment rate increased from 4.5% to 4.7%.

The State’s private sector job count is based on a payroll survey of 18,000 New York employers conducted by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. Monthly payroll employment estimates are preliminary and subject to revision as more data becomes available the following month. The federal government calculates New York State’s unemployment rate based partly upon the results of the Current Population Survey, which contacts approximately 3,100 households in New York State each month.

“The State’s private sector job count increased by 18,800 in July 2017, reaching a new record high. New York State’s economy has also now added more than one million private sector jobs since the beginning of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s administration,” said Bohdan M. Wynnyk, Director of the New York State Department of Labor’s Division of Research and Statistics.
