New York-New Jersey Frequently Asked Questions

New York-New Jersey Special Notices

  • Pay premiums among major industry groups in New York City
  • Although workers in New York City continue to earn substantially more on average than workers in lower-cost areas, most of the rise in New York City’s pay premium is attributable to growth in average pay in the financial activities industries; despite a 2007–2009 decline, the financial activities pay premium nearly doubled during the 1990–2009 period. See www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/2011/10/art3full.pdf.

  • The construction boom and bust in New York City
  • During the construction boom that began in 2000, construction employment rose later and with more intensity in New York City than in the Nation as a whole, while the eventual construction bust was later but less severe in the City than nationally; the City’s gains and losses were concentrated in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. See www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/2011/10/art2full.pdf.

  • Manhattan’s financial sector and the 2005–07 employment dynamic
  • A first-time look at county-level Business Employment Dynamics data offers new insights into Manhattan employment growth and the financial sector during the period just prior to the recession beginning in December 2007. See www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/2009/10/art2full.pdf.

  • Health care industries and the New York City labor market
  • From 1990 to 1995, New York City’s health care employment rose faster than the national average, but growth then slowed until 2002, when the pace quickened again; the 1995–2002 slowdown reflected slower growth in hospital care expenditures, while accelerated job growth after 2002 reflected strong growth in the elderly population and in home health care.  See www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/2009/09/art1full.pdf.
