Kansas Economy Improving

KSCB News - January 18, 2012 8:10 am

A revised forecast anticipates the Kansas
economy will improve slowly despite unknown factors locally and
The Center for Economic Development and Business Research at
Wichita State University Tuesday released its revised employment
forecast for the Wichita metropolitan area and the state.
The state’s economy is expected to begin growing modestly, with
13,010 new jobs bringing a 1 percent uptick in employment.
The forecast anticipates job growth in Wichita this year, but at
a slower pace than had been expected when the initial forecast was
released in October. Since then, Boeing announced it was closing
its Wichita plant.
Updated estimates anticipate a total gain of 1,735 jobs in
Wichita. That represents just a fraction of an increase in 2012
