Although industrial employment in New York held steady in the last year, jobs grew 2.7 percent in upstate New York, according to the 2013 New York Manufacturers Registe, an industrial directory published annually by Manufacturers' News Inc. in Evanston, Ill. 

That grow is made up by 1,361 new industrial jobs that were created between August 2011 and August 2012; however, the rest of New York lost 294 jobs. New York now accounts for 16,922 manufacturers employing 733,548 workers.
