Report: Non-farm Kansas Jobs to Increase in 2017

KSAL StaffOctober 7, 2016

A recent Wichita State University report says Kansas could see more than 12,000 new non-farm jobs in the coming year.

The Hutchinson News  reports that there are over 1.4 million non-farm jobs in the state this year.

The report from the Center for Economic Development and Business Research at the university’s business school forecasts that most of new jobs are expected to be in the service sector. Financial, education and health services, as well as leisure and hospitality sectors are also expected to grow.

Growth in trade, transportation, manufacturing and utilities jobs are predicted as well, but only by a little more than half of a percent.

The report says there will be a slight decline in federal and state government employment.
