New York’s economy is showing signs of recovery but private sector jobs continue to decline, according to a monthly report released by a group representing the state’s counties.

“New York has historically entered periods of recession later than the nation, but usually remains in economic decline almost twice as long as the rest of the country,” New York Association of Counties president Tom Santulli said in a release. “Unfortunately it appears that this trend is holding up in this recession. While we may have hit bottom, we haven’t started to climb out of this slump yet.”
