The changing composition of upstate New York's workforce

Abstract: We use newly available data from the 2000 census to assess the occupational composition of the upstate New York workforce and to analyze how it has changed since the 1990 census. We also compare the evolving mix of occupations in our region with that of the nation as a whole, an approach that allows us to identify upstate New York's areas of specialization and some unique features of the changes in the region's labor market.

Keywords: Labor market - New York (State); Employment - New York (State); Federal Reserve District, 2nd;
