Economic researchers at Wichita State University are preparing to release their 2013 employment forecast for Kansas.
The forecast being released Wednesday online is produced by the university's Center for Economic Development and Business Research. The center's analysts look at signs of economic stability and weakness, then use those indicators to predict employment by industry in the coming year.
The center's annual Wichita Economic Outlook Conference will take place Oct. 11 at Century II. This year the center has added four more such conferences around the state. Those are set for later this month in Pittsburg, Hays, Emporia and Dodge City.
