A new estimate from the Emporia State Economic Index shows Kansas’ economy started to level off in October.
The GDP for the state shrank slightly by 0.1 percent from September. That follows months of strong growth after a low point in March. There is some positive news: Kansas' GDP grew 1.7 percent since October 2016.
The Emporia State Economic Index was created by Dr. Marc Anthony Fusaro, the director of the Center for Business and Economic Development at Emporia State University. The index estimates GDP monthly in Kansas, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
