Kansas Unemployment Rises

Kansas' unemployment rate rose slightly in

August, but state officials still saw some positive economic news.

The state Department of Labor reported Tuesday that the

seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.6 percent last month,

compared with 6.5 percent in July. The rate was 7.2 percent in

August 2009.

The adjusted rate takes seasonal fluctuations in employment into

account. For example, Kansas lost about 1,100 jobs in August, but

state officials say some losses are normal.

State officials instead focused on a gain of 6,900 jobs in

August, compared with August 2009. The employment growth was about

one half of 1 percent.

Gov. Mark Parkinson said the figure shows Kansas continues to

recover economically.
