Kansas Wage Survey Disclaimer
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) calculates employment and wage estimates for each of the States, Metropolitan Statistical Areas and Balance-of-State areas within each state. In order to better meet the needs of local users, the Kansas Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) staff has produced wage estimates for geographic areas not produced by BLS. Due to confidentiality and quality criteria, Kansas Labor Market Information Services cannot produce estimates for every occupation in every geographic area. State created areas are not validated by BLS and are not, therefore, official BLS data series. The Kansas OES staff feels, however, that they provide additional information that is useful to the users of Kansas data.
NOTE: In the 2010 Kansas Wage Survey (2009 data) the county level estimates do not include state government wages and estimated employment with the exception of Shawnee County which includes all of the Topeka MSA state government employment and wage estimates.
