Local News

According to statistics released Thursday by the New York State Department of Labor, in December 2016, New York State’s private sector job count increased by 9,000, or 0.1%, to 7,963,900.

The Labor Department says that is a new record high, according to the preliminary figures.

In December 2016, New York’s statewide unemployment rate decreased from 5.1% to 4.9%.

Monthly payroll employment estimates are preliminary and subject to revision as more data becomes available the following month.

The number of nonfarm jobs in Cortland County is up 1.5% from December 2015 to December 2016. The state estimates that there are 20,100 jobs in the county, up 300 from a year ago.

Note: Seasonally adjusted data are used to provide the most valid month-to-month comparison. Non-seasonally adjusted data are valuable in year-to-year comparisons of the same month – for example, December 2015 versus December 2016.
