Whether we’re tracking the evolution and growth of NYC’s economy and neighborhoods, publishing new data and innovative case studies, or analyzing the emergence of new industries, NYCEDC has its finger on the pulse across all five boroughs.

The Economic Research & Policy Group

NYCEDC's Economic Research & Policy (ERP) group performs industry and economic research to provide insights into key policy issues, conducts economic analysis of New York City projects, and tracks economic trends for policymakers and the public. ERP also helps NYCEDC evaluate projects by setting up tools to assess, measure, and report on ideation and results. The team advances high-impact thought leadership on inclusive and innovation-driven economic development.

Economic Development Quarterly

ERP publishes quarterly white papers focusing on current trends and topics affecting New Yorkers. The group takes a data-driven approach to develop informed conclusions and recommendations to foster a more inclusive economy in New York City. 

Women 50+ in the NYC Workforce – February 2020

This paper focuses on the unique set of challenges women age 50 and older in NYC face in the workplace. Women 50+ still bear a greater burden of childcare and other family responsibilities; earn lower incomes and are less likely to have jobs; are more vulnerable to financial insecurity; and, when they are employed, are more likely to have part-time jobs with fewer benefits.

We explore city-level socioeconomic characteristics of economic vulnerability, adding a new perspective to the existing literature on national-level studies. Some of our insights vary sharply from what is observed in the US as a whole.
