Work and Unemployment
Produced by the Kansas Department of Labor, this report provides a ten-year projection for job availability in various industries and occupations throughout Kansas. Data is specified for seven regions within the state, including the Kansas City region. Projections were produced using 2006 as the base-year employment. Wage and educational information are also included in the report.
This report, produced by the Missouri Economic Research and Information Center’s (MERIC) Projections Group, provides both industry and occupational employment projections, estimating the state’s growth and decline in jobs, output, and labor force over the ten-year period of 2006-2016. The projections program is federally funded through the Employment and Training Administration, an agency within the United States Department of Labor. MERIC’s multi-step methodology used for developing employment projections — based on past and present trends — is fully described within the report.
