KANSAS Economic Databook


Pages 1 - 3 : County unemployment rates typically lag state data
releases by one month. Gray bars show recessionary periods as
designated by the National Bureau of Economic Research. The
"official" and most commonly reported unemployment rate is
calculated as the number of unemployed workers divided by the
total civilian labor force. These data are reported from the Bureau of
Labor Statistics Current Population Survey, or commonly called the
"Household" survey.
Page 4 : Nonfarm employment data from the Bureau of Labor
Statistics Current Employment Survey are commonly called
"Payroll" employment data. Estimates from this survey are revised
throughout the year and a major revision or "benchmark" of the
data occurs in March of each year. "Payroll" and "Household"
surveys are released monthly, providing the most current estimates
of employment published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Because
methodologies differ between surveys, employment estimates also
differ. For more information, visit:
http://www.bls.gov/web/empsit/ces_cps_trends.pdf
Initial claims show monthly applications for initial claims for state
unemployment insurance benefits.
Pages 5 and 6 : Payroll employment by industry is shown for each of
the major two-digit North American Industrial Classification System
industries.

NOTES
Data Revisions
Most data are revised periodically to correct for errors and incorporate
additional information as it becomes available. Data shown in this report
are subject to change.
Seasonal Adjustments
Most data are seasonally adjusted to remove variance caused by seasonal
fluctuations in economic activity. Data in this report show the seasonal
adjustments of data publishers where available. In other cases, Census X12 adjustments were applied.

Page 7 : Personal income provides a measure of all income received


by residents of a given geographic area. Data shown are in nominal
terms (not adjusted for inflation). Transfer payments include social
benefits such as unemployment insurance, Social Security, and
Medicaid. Contributions to social insurance are subtracted from
personal income. These contributions include taxes paid by
businesses and employees that support social insurance programs
such as unemployment insurance, Social Security, and Medicaid. The
residence adjustment adds income received outside of a recipient's
state of residence and makes a corresponding subtraction from the
area where this income was earned or received. Real average hourly
wages are calculated as total earnings divided by total employment
for a given geographic area. Data are adjusted for inflation using the
consumer price index for all urban areas (CPI-U) and are indexed to
the most current month of data.
Page 8 : Home price indices estimate regional growth in home values
based on repeat sales data for detached single family residential
properties. Monthly single and multifamily housing permits data are
not revised, and therefore, may not sum to published year-end totals.
Page 9 : The active rig count is the number of rigs actively exploring
for or developing oil or natural gas. Rig counts provide an indicator
of new drilling activity and potential for expanded crude oil or
natural gas production. Coal production is shown as production
during a given month.
