The Kansas Job Vacancy Survey (JVS) provides a semi-annual snapshot of labor demand in the state and in each of the local areas based on a survey of Kansas employers. It provides valuable information regarding vacancies by industry and occupation, as well as the following details about vacancies: permanent/temporary and full-time/part-time status of vacancies, educational and experience requirements, average wage offers, benefits associated with vacancies, and information on if the vacancies are hard to fill.
The Spring 2018 Kansas Job Vacancy Survey was conducted between April 1 and June 30 and found there were an estimated 49,640 vacancies, a 1.5 percent increase from one year ago. Leisure and hospitality recorded the most job vacancies of any industry while combined food preparation and serving workers, including fast food was the occupation with the most vacancies.

We would like to thank the employers who took the time to respond to the Spring 2018 Kansas Job Vacancy Survey during the months of April, May and June. Without their help, this study would not have been possible. We hope to continue to partner with Kansas employers to produce and provide useful and timely workforce information that will benefit employers, job seekers and the state's workforce development efforts.
