Chemung County is the only area in Upstate New York where jobs are declining.

The assessment comes from analysts with the Federal Bank of New York. It says recent job losses in manufacturing was a factor leading to the analysis. 

“I think that maybe what’s a little different in Elmira relative to other parts of the region is that other parts of the region seem to have their manufacturing sector level out a bit earlier,” Jaison Abel, a research officer with the Federal Bank of New York, said. “You know, this has even happened in Binghamton more recently.”

Our neighbor to the east has seen 300 additional private sector jobs on a year-to-year basis while Elmira has seen the same number of loses on the same basis.
