Labor Force Participation Rate

Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

Annual average of the percent of Kansas residents over the age of 16 who have a job or are looking for a job (in calendar years).  Kansas' labor force participation rate is higher than the national average, which is a sign of a dedicated workforce.  More information can be found on KLIC.dol.ks.gov.

Graphs show the Labor Force Participation Rate for FY13 through FY17 and FY18 by Quarter

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.
