WEBINAR ONLY EVENT

Are Kansans Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise? 
 
The Center for Economic Development and Business Research, part of the W. Frank Barton School of Business at Wichita State University, invites you to participate in a dialogue about the current economic conditions of households across Kansas. The Center will present its new index that compares households across the state in three broad areas: health, wealth, and wisdom. These areas give an indication of the strengths and weaknesses within the labor market. Multiple state experts will facilitate discussions with business leaders around the issues and strengths identified in the index.

While incomes have grown in Kansas in recent years, not all workers in Kansas have benefited equally.  This presentation examines the gaps in income geographically throughout the state, as well as income gaps in Kansas by gender, ethnicity, and age, and how those compare to the nation.
