Binghamton Average Job Count Unchanged

The Binghamton metropolitan area posted no increase in its annual private sector average job count.

The state Department of Labor today reported every metro area of New York except Binghamton and Elmira showed gains in their average job counts between 2011 and 2012.

Although Binghamton’s average private sector job number remained unchanged, Elmira posted a .3 percent decline.

Most upstate metropolitan areas posted modest increases, although Ithaca and Albany showed the greatest percentage growth in private sector jobs with gains of about two percent.

Comparing this past January with January 2012, the Binghamton labor market experienced a net gain of 100 private sector jobs. But the area’s total nonfarm job count actually fell by 1,000 over the twelve-month period because of the loss of government jobs.
