No. 20: New York (No. 23 in 2019)

Number of CRN Solution Provider 500 Companies: 38

COVID-19 Business Impact Rank: 9

New York was among the hardest hit states in the early months of the pandemic – both in terms of the number of cases and deaths in the state as well as economically. New York’s net job loss February to July 2020 was 14.2 percent of the workforce (No. 49) with the unemployment rate standing at 15.7 percent (No. 48) in July. The state’s GDP declined 8.2 percent in the first quarter of 2020 (No. 49).

But the Empire State’s overall COVID-19 ranking is high because of the resources it brought to bear to deal with the crisis, its recovery and its diversified economy.

More long term, the Empire State is No. 50 for high labor and operating costs and No. 40 for high taxes (particularly its 8.52 percent sales tax).

On the plus side, New York ranks No. 12 for workforce education and experience and No. 4 for entrepreneurship and innovation: The tech industry employs 679,083 in New York, No. 3 among the states, according to the CompTIA2020 Cyberstates Report.
