It's good news, bad news in the state's latest job numbers.

According to the state comptroller, New York added 110,000 jobs between June of 2012 and 2013.

However, for the first time in six years, the state's job growth lagged behind the national rate.

The state fell short in nearly every major employment sector, including professional services, hospitality and construction.

New Yorkers' per capita income is about $10,000 higher than the national average, but the cost of living in much of the state, including in the city, is also higher than the rest of the country.
