Update on Kansas and Missouri economies: Spotlight on Western Kansas

Abstract: The economic situation in Kansas improved during the summer of 2012, but conditions in Missouri weakened. Employment growth was positive in Kansas during the second quarter, but the pace of growth slowed. In Missouri, employment growth was negative. The unemployment rate rose slightly in both states, but labor market indicators suggest that conditions could improve in the third quarter of 2012.
