New Report Notes NYC Metro Now Top Market for U.S. Life Sciences Jobs and Funding
A new report released by the New York City Economic Development Corporation and Department of City Planning, Life Sciences in the NYC Metro, shows that the NYC Metro is leading the country on jobs and funding in the life sciences industry.
The report illustrates the scale of the NYC Metro region life sciences economy with nearly 150,000 jobs and 5,100 businesses, generating over $23 billion in wages last year. The report further finds that the NYC Metro region has 14,000 more life sciences jobs than the next leading metro area, San Francisco, and 30 percent more life sciences businesses than Boston, which followed on the list. Further, the NYC Metro has more than 83,000 life science workers in specialized occupations—the largest concentration of technical life sciences workers in the nation.
"The biosciences industry is one of the strongest in Westchester County, and growing," said Westchester County Executive George Latimer. "This report reinforces the critical role Westchester plays in the biosciences sector throughout the New York metro area. It is exciting to see proof that our regional ecosystem is as strong as, or stronger than, Boston and the Bay area."
