According to the New Haven Register, the labor force decreased in size in about 2,000 people from April to May 2008, an indicator of an economic downturn. Jobs also dropped by 400 over the course of this year. Donald Klepper-Smith, chief economist at DataCore Partners LLC in New Haven, made the point that the cost of living in New Haven is less than neighboring counties and that “New Haven is ripe with amenities: access to ports, proximity to New York and Boston, and a good mix of arts and culture with professional opportunities through education, science, health care and biotechnology.” According to the U.S. Department of Labor, average hourly earnings rose 6 cents from last month.

Some industries reporting growth in the area are:
