Kansas experienced a large number of job losses during 2006. This is a sign that business development in the state is low. A number of statistics show that Kansas only added about 2,000 jobs by the second quarter of 2006, which is lower than 2005. In addition to this, many employees lost their jobs in the transportation, utilities, trade, and manufacturing industries. In addition to this, the information sector also saw a large decline during 2006. There were some jobs added in the areas of food processing and other disposable goods, but only 1500 jobs are expected to be added to manufacturing during the next three years, a dismal amount when you consider the total population of the state.
The high cost of energy has played a prominent role in the decline of jobs during 2006. The information sector has lost jobs at a tremendous rate, and the primary reason for this is restructuring by large companies. The financial institutions in Kansas have reported solid interest margins. Agricultural businesses are also suffering in Kansas, primarily because of drought. Droughts became a tremendous problem during the first quarter of 2006, and drought conditions are now present througout much of the state. Because of higher than normal temperatures and low precipitation, over 70 percent of the top soil is very dry.
The yield for agricultural products such as corn and wheat will be reduced. Livestock are having problems due to reduced amounts of water. This has made agriculture one of the most risky industries in the entire state. Because of the challenges encountered when caring for livestock, many farmers have reduce the sizes of there herds, increasing the prices of their livestock. Public water supplies have also experienced problems due to the drought. A number of suppliers througout the state has passed restrictions on the use of water. The World Trade Organization has stopped negotiations for future payments for farmers, and this has created more instability for those employed in the agricultural industry.
The farmers in Kansas rely heavily on payments from the federal government, and any decision made by the WTO can effect them in a positive or adverse manner. One industry that experienced rapid growth in Kansas in 2006 was construction. The construction industry grew by a rate of over 5% by the second quarter, much higher than the previous three years. Many banks have benefited from the construction boom, since many developers will need funding before they can begin development. The growth of such loans increased by more than 15%.
Overall, 2006 was a bad year for Kansas. Few states in the U.S experienced a decline in growth in so many industries, and drought conditions throughout the state have only amplified these problems. It is very likely tha the drought conditions in the state will lead to an increase in water prices, which will be compounded by high energy prices. The only industries to truly see growth during 2006 are the banking and construction industries. The growth of credit products also increased.
