ALBANY, N.Y. — Wall Street cash bonuses for 2012 are expected to rise 8 percent to $20 billion, partly driven by deferred payments from previous years, New York’s state comptroller reported Tuesday.

The analysis shows the ­securities industry is still restructuring since the 2008 ­financial crisis, with almost 20,000 — or 10 percent — fewer jobs in New York City, Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said. The 169,700 jobs in ­December were down 1,000 from a year before.

The average securities industry salary, including bonuses, rose slightly to almost $362,900 in 2011, higher than before the crisis and more than five times higher than the $68,000 average in the rest of the city’s private sector. The 2012 wage data was not available Tuesday.
