Kansas Says 2014 Job Growth Better Than Previously Reported

KSAL StaffMarch 6, 2015

Kansas labor officials say the state’s private-sector job growth last year was stronger than previously reported and the highest rate since 2007.

The state Department of Labor reported Friday that the number of people employed in private sector jobs was 1.9 percent higher on average each month than in 2013.

The department said the new rate was based on more comprehensive federal data. The previous figure was 1.3 percent.

An average of about 1.14 million Kansas residents held private-sector jobs each month in 2014. The department had calculated the figure was 14,000 higher than in 2013, based on preliminary data.

But federal officials provide more comprehensive data after about six months, and it showed Kansas having an average of 20,800 more private-sector workers each month, compared with 2013.
