KS: lowest unemployment rate in recorded history
06/23/2022

(KAIR)--The “lowest unemployment rate in the state’s recorded history.”
That’s what Kansas Governor Laura Kelly celebrated Monday, as the state’s unemployment rate stood at 2.3%. That's the lowest rate since the state started keeping records of monthly unemployment rates in 1976.

According to a release from Kelly’s office, “unemployment continues to decline in the state, even as the unemployment rate nationally holds flat,” with Kelly calling 2.3% “over a full percentage point below the nation’s unemployment rate.”
Kansas, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “has the sixth lowest unemployment rate in the country relative to other states.”

The release, citing “preliminary estimates reported by the Labor Market Information Services Division of the Kansas Department of Labor and the Bureau of Labor Statistics,” shows a seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 2.3% in May, a decrease from 2.4% in April and a decrease from 3.4% last year.

Meanwhile, the release says “the unemployment rate in the United States as a whole has remained at 3.6% for three consecutive months, a rate significantly higher than Kansas estimates.”
