The purpose of the paper is to understand the behavior of the labor market variables, especially job and worker flows in the New York State counties. The paper identifies some strong regional trends in the data. Geography plays an important role in the behavior of these variables. Especially, counties surrounding big cities have generally not so favorable labor market outcomes. This finding can have very strong implication in terms of how the policy makers implement the labor market policies. Labor market policies taken at the national or the state level may not be that efficient or effective in delivering these policies. Policy makers need to take a more localized view of the labor market problems.
