Traditional LMI Jobs Report

 
 

Every month, we release a report summarizing major 1-month and 12-month changes in New York City employment and job growth using traditional sources of labor market information (mainly, local area unemployment and current employment statistics).

 

Most Recent:

November 2014: New York City’s economy grew by 81,100 private sector jobs since November 2013, 24,800 of which were added in the past month. The rate at which New York City added private-sector jobs (+2.3%) outpaced the State (+1.3%) and tied the nation (+2.3%). New York City's not seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for November 2014 was 6.6 percent, down 1.4 percentage points from this time last year as employment gains outpaced increases in citywide labor market participation.

Despite these gains, however, the citywide unemployment rate continues to lag behind the state (5.8%) and the nation (5.5%). Over the past month, both employment and labor force participation abated, raising the citywide unemployment rate by two-tenths of a percentage point. While the unemployment rates for each borough ticked up slightly over the past month, however, over the course of the year each declined by least a full percentage point.

2013 Reports:

Real Time Jobs Report

 
 

These reports summarize monthly employment opportunity trends in New York City by utilizing real time labor market information analysis. Real-time labor market information comes from the daily scraping and analysis of online labor exchanges. It can provide insight into the nature and extent of current employer demand, emerging occupations, and skill requirements.

Internet job ads represent about 70 percent of all vacancies in the economy (and nearly 95% of jobs other than the lowest skill, lowest pay, and highest turnover occupations such as in retail, food service, and construction).

Most Recent:

November 2014: November 2014 saw a 5% increase in job postings from last year, with the largest proportion of job listings in the professional, scientific and technical services sector. The most in-demand occupations were marketing managers, web developers, software developers, executive assistants, and financial managers of branches and departments. Major employers include J.P. Morgan Chase and Co., Michael Page, Northshore LIJ and the City of New York.
