Kansas Reports Job Growth

KSCB News - November 23, 2011 8:11 am

The Kansas Department of Labor is predicting
total employment in the state will increase by nearly 10 percent
through 2018.
The department released its occupational outlook report this
month as a guide to help students, educators and businesses plan
for the future.
The report predicts Kansas will gain an average of more than
14,700 jobs a year through 2018. The health care and social assistance
sector is expected to account for nearly 13 percent of total
growth, which would put it ahead of manufacturing as the state’s
leading industry.
More than 45 percent of all job growth is expected to occur in
the Kansas City region. The report also says jobs that require a
doctoral degree are expected to grow by nearly 21 percent.
