Mass layoffs at a more local level

Some asked if there are statistics below the state level on mass layoffs as defined by Bureau of Labor Statistics?

Here's an answer, provided by one of our Data Detectives:

They aren’t precise statistics, but the New York State Labor Department features on its website significant business expansions and contractions, as reported in local media.
Go to: labor.ny.gov/stats/index.shtm.
Click on “Regional Data” on the left hand side.
Choose your area of interest.
Some regions will have a section called employer or firm “expansions and contractions.”
It is in narrative form with statistics cited, but the information is by no means neat and tidy.
