The mortgage industry saw employment expand in 2009 following three years that amounted to more than 100,000 job losses, according to a fourth-quarter report from MortgageDaily.com, though the good news eluded the state of New York.

Last year saw the creation of a net 8,321 mortgage industry jobs countrywide, a major improvement over the 36,766 net jobs lost in 2008 and the 88,817 jobs the industry shed during 2007.
