Economic researchers at Wichita State University are forecasting a 1.8 percent employment growth in Kansas next year.

The university's Center for Economic Development and Business Research reported Wednesday it expected 24,175 new jobs to be created in Kansas next year.

Most of those new jobs are expected to be in professional and business services, education and health services, and leisure and hospitality.

Job losses were forecast in government and information industries.

The research group's director, Jeremy Hill, says the forecast does not factor in automatic federal government spending cuts, which would significantly affect the aviation-dependent economy in Wichita. The outlook also does not account for the ramifications if federal tax cuts are not extended.
