The state’s unemployment rate remained unchanged in April, standing at 3.9 percent after it was revised downward in March, the state Department of Labor said.

The state’s private-sector job count grew by 24,600 to more than 8.3 million, which was called a new all-time high.

“New York is open for business and the proof is in these numbers,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement Our goal is to provide excellent employment opportunities across the state by bolstering our regionally focused economic development strategies and diversifying our portfolio through new and innovative industries.

“While we continue to set record numbers, we still have more work to do. New York must continue to build on our economic success by creating and retaining jobs to pave the way for future success.”

EJ McMahon of the Empire Center, however, pointed out that much of the job growth is being seen unevenly across the state as the April numbers show “a wide regional variation in private job creation rates around the state—and New York as a whole continues to trail employment growth nationally.”
