2020 Employment Projections

Kansas 10 Year Job Outlook
2010 - 2020


The Kansas Occupational Outlook projects the total employment in the state of Kansas to grow by 177,741 jobs over the 10 year period.  Nearly half (45 percent) of these new jobs will be in the healthcare and education sector.

The 10 year projection program projects the long-term trend of employment in Kansas.  The major assumption is full employment in the projected year.  In this way the program is not intending to project future expansions and contractions, only the long-term trend.

Long-term projections are created every two years and cover a 10-year time span. The projections are funded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Employment and Training Administration.
