Employment among New York's small businesses has increased slightly faster than the national pace, according to a report released today by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. The report, based on the most recent data available from the U.S. Census Bureau, examined the five-year trend from 2011 through 2016.

During that time frame, small business employment rose by 9.2 percent in New York while increasing 8.9 percent across the country. These companies provided more than 4.1 million jobs in the state in 2016, just over half of all private sector jobs in New York. Small businesses provided more than $212 billion in payroll, nearly 40 percent of the total private sector payroll in the state.
