Update on Kansas and Missouri economies: Spotlight on Joplin, Missouri

Abstract: The Missouri and Kansas economies expanded during the fall of 2012. Employment growth in Missouri has accelerated since the summer, while job growth slowed in Kansas but remained positive. The unemployment rate fell in both states, and residential real estate continued to rebound in both Kansas and Missouri. Farmland values grew, but agricultural conditions overall began to show effects from the drought.
