The purpose of this paper is to understand the labor market flows in the New York State using the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) data from the United States Census bureau. The LED data provides information regarding hires, separations, employment, job flows and wages at county and industry level for the United States. The study finds that in the period between 2001 and 2008 in the New York State, there have been substantial changes in the pattern of employment, labor turnover and wages based upon gender. Though female employability improved compared to male, but the gap between male-female wage widened during the period.
