New York Employment Profile

Located in the BLS New York-New Jersey region, the Empire State’s primary economic driver historically is New York City, the world’s financial capital. Job growth in the leisure and hospitality sectors confirms New York City’s status as a national and international shopping and tourist destination. New York is also known for agricultural products such as dairy, apples, cherries, cabbages, and maple syrup. New York’s economy will continue to be challenged by slow population growth and a sizable state debt burden. (Source: FY 2016 Executive Budget: Economic and Revenue Outlook)
