New York state's health care jobs exceeded 1.2 million in 2017, according to a report released today by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. Health care employment rose by more than 18 percent over the past decade, more than double the pace of overall employment growth.

"Year in and year out, health care has been a growth sector for jobs in New York over the past decade," DiNapoli said. "Across upstate New York in particular, private employment would have declined if not for job gains in health care. If the federal government cuts health care spending, it could jeopardize these jobs and hurt an important sector of New York's economy."

New York sent an estimated $24.1 billion more in tax payments to Washington than it got back in federal spending in federal fiscal year (FFY) 2017, getting back 90 cents for every dollar, according to a reportreleased today by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. In 2017, New York was one of just 11 states that sent more to Washington than it received. Only New Jersey, Massachusetts and Connecticut fared worse while New Mexico fared the best.

"New York gives more than it gets back from Washington and threats to cut federal funding for health care and other programs could tip the balance even further," DiNapoli said. "The state relies on the federal government for a third of its annual budget, but the imbalance of tax dollars remains. New Yorkers deserve to be treated more fairly in the federal budget."
