Kansas Unemployment Rate
Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration
This is the average annual unemployment rate for Kansas in calendar years. It shows the percentage of people who are looking for work. Lower rates are good and indicate more Kansans are employed. More information can be found on KLIC.dol.ks.gov.
In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years. Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized. This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes. Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter. This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
