These statistics should include the following: population on NYC & boroughs, demographics of NYC and boroughs, GDP of NYC as related to other cities in the world, top industries in NYC and boroughs, a list of all tech startups with more than $1B in valuation over the last 10 years in NYC, and a breakdown of founder demographics of all startups with more than $100M in valuation over the past 10 years in NYC.
