New York Area Employment – August 2014

Job count up 1.8 percent over the year in area and 2.6 percent in New York City

Total nonfarm employment for the New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island Metropolitan Statistical Area rose by 156,500 or 1.8 percent from August 2013 to August 2014, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Martin Kohli, the Bureau’s chief regional economist, noted that the area’s rate of growth matched the national figure of 1.8 percent. In New York City, employment increased by 102,400 or 2.6 percent from August a year ago. (See table 1 and chart 1.) (The Technical Note at the end of this release contains metropolitan area definitions. All data in this release are not seasonally adjusted; accordingly, over-the-year analysis is used throughout.)

Chart 1. Total nonfarm employment, over-the-year percent change, the United States, the New York metropolitan area, and New York City, August 2004-August 2014

The New York metropolitan area is made up of four metropolitan divisions—separately identifiable employment centers within the larger metropolitan area. New York-White Plains-Wayne, with 62 percent of the area’s employment, gained 117,500 jobs since August 2013. Nassau-Suffolk and Newark-Union added 20,000 and 12,700 jobs, respectively. Edison-New Brunswick gained 6,300 jobs.

New York-White Plains-Wayne employment grew by 2.2 percent, the largest rate of growth among the metropolitan divisions. Nassau-Suffolk and Newark-Union followed, with employment growth of 1.6 percent and 1.3 percent, respectively. In Edison, employment grew by 0.6 percent. (See chart 2.)

Industry employment

Employment in education and health services expanded by 63,600 in the New York metropolitan area from August 2013, the largest annual gain since the series began in 1990. Ambulatory health care services accounted for about one-third of the growth in the area. The increase included New York City’s addition of 9,000 jobs in home health care services and 8,000 jobs in colleges and universities. In the New York metropolitan area, education and health services employment grew 4.1 percent over the year, compared to the national growth rate of 1.8 percent. (See chart 3.)

The next largest job gain occurred in trade, transportation, and utilities. The supersector added 41,500 jobs, of which more than half were in retail trade. Additionally, transportation and warehousing employment increased by 14,500, a series high, with New York City and Nassau-Suffolk adding a combined total of more than 8,000 jobs from August 2013. The New York area’s 2.6-percent rate of job growth in trade, transportation, and utilities exceeded the 2.0-percent U.S. average.

Two other local supersectors gained at least 25,000 jobs since August 2013. The professional and business services supersector added 30,000 jobs. In addition to New York City’s gain of 11,100 jobs in professional and technical services, Bergen-Hudson-Passaic and Nassau-Suffolk added a combined total of almost 10,000 jobs in administrative and waste services. Leisure and hospitality supersector employment increased by 25,100—almost three quarters of that expansion was in accommodation and food services, with New York City adding the bulk of the jobs. The 2.1-percent rate of job growth in the metropolitan area in professional and business services compared to 3.5 percent for the nation.

Two supersectors lost more than 3,000 jobs locally over the year. Government employment dropped by 3,800, primarily in local government which lost 5,000 jobs. Information supersector employment declined by 3,600; most of the loss occurred within the telecommunications industry, with all four metropolitan divisions recording job losses.

Employment in the 12 largest metropolitan areas

New York was 1 of the nation’s 12 largest metropolitan statistical areas in August 2014. All of these areas experienced over-the-year job growth, with six matching or exceeding the national average of 1.8 percent. The fastest rate of job growth was registered in Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown, up 3.9 percent, more than double that for the nation. Detroit-Warren-Livonia had the smallest increase, up 0.1 percent. (See chart 4. and table 2.)

New York added the largest number of jobs, 156,500, since August 2013. Two other metropolitan areas gained more than 100,000 jobs—Houston (107,400) and Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington (101,500). Detroit recorded the smallest employment gain over the year, up 2,700, and was the only area of the 12 to add fewer than 10,000 jobs.

Professional and businesses services registered the largest over-the-year employment gains in 6 of the 12 metropolitan areas from August a year ago—Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, Chicago-Joliet-Naperville, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana, and San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont. Education and health services led employment gains in Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, Houston, New York, and Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington.

Over the year, government recorded the largest loss of jobs in two areas—New York and Philadelphia. Manufacturing recorded the largest job losses in two areas—Chicago and Los Angeles. Dallas, Houston and Miami had no annual job losses in any supersector.

Metropolitan area employment data for September 2014 are scheduled to be released on Wednesday, October 29, 2014.

Technical Note

This release presents nonfarm payroll employment estimates from the Current Employment Statistics (CES) program. The CES survey is a Federal-State cooperative endeavor between State employment security agencies and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Definitions. Employment data refer to persons on establishment payrolls who receive pay for any part of the pay period that includes the 12th of the month. Persons are counted at their place of work rather than at their place of residence; those appearing on more than one payroll are counted on each payroll. Industries are classified on the basis of their principal activity in accordance with the 2012 version of the North American Industry Classification System.

Method of estimation. The employment data are estimated using a "link relative" technique in which a ratio (link relative) of current-month employment to that of the previous month is computed from a sample of establishments reporting for both months. The estimates of employment for the current month are obtained by multiplying the estimates for the previous month by these ratios. Small-domain models are used as the official estimators for the approximately 39 percent of CES published series which have insufficient sample for direct sample-based estimates.

Annual revisions. Employment estimates are adjusted annually to a complete count of jobs, called benchmarks, derived principally from tax reports that are submitted by employers who are covered under state unemployment insurance (UI) laws. The benchmark information is used to adjust the monthly estimates between the new benchmark and the preceding one and also to establish the level of employment for the new benchmark month. Thus, the benchmarking process establishes the level of employment, and the sample is used to measure the month-to-month changes in the level for the subsequent months.

Reliability of the estimates
The estimates presented in this release are based on a sample survey, administrative data, and modeling and thus are subject to sampling and other types of errors. Sampling error is a measure of sampling variability—that is, variation that occurs by chance because a sample rather than the entire population is surveyed. Survey data also are subject to nonsampling errors, such as those which can be introduced into the data collection and processing operations. Estimates not directly derived from sample surveys are subject to additional errors resulting from the specific estimation processes used. The sums of individual items may not always equal the totals shown in the same tables because of rounding.

Employment estimates. Measures of sampling error for state CES data at the supersector level are available online at www.bls.gov/sae/790stderr.htm. Information on recent benchmark revisions for states is available on the BLS Web site at www.bls.gov/sae/.

Additional information
Industry employment data for states and metropolitan areas from the CES program are also available in the above mentioned news releases and from the Internet at www.bls.gov/sae/.
