What does this measure?

The growth or decline in total jobs, shown as a percentage gain or loss from the previous year.

Why is this important?

Job growth is a key indicator of economic health and vitality and reveals whether and by how much an economy is expanding. In addition to the number of jobs, the quality of jobs should be considered - this is reflected in measures of average salary.

How is our region performing?

Total jobs increased by 1.3% in the region from 2017 to 2018, placing our region below the state and national level (2.3% and 2%, respectively). The number of jobs rose in 8 of the 9 counties in the region between 2017 and 2018. Over that time period, Yates experienced a 1.8% increase in total jobs, a greater increase than in the region and highest of the counties. Next highest were Livingston (1.5%) and Ontario (1.4%). Before the recession began in 2008, the region consistently performed below both the state and nation in job growth, but between 2008 and 2010, the region did slightly better than the nation. Since then, job growth in the region has consistently been below the national and state rates.

Notes about the data

County employment is reported by place of work, not place of residence. Data for this indicator are expected to be released in the fourth quarter.
