Barton County historically keeps a fairly low unemployment rate. However, our workforce is supplemented with labor pools from surrounding areas. Great Bend Economic Development, along with our workforce partners, are always actively recruiting a skilled labor force to the area through our job recruitment sites Central Kansas Jobs and KANSASWORKS

Understanding Unemployment: Where do the numbers come from?

Estimates for the unemployment rate are based on data for the civilian noninstitutional population age 16 and older. Individuals who are employed or unemployed are considered part of the labor force. If someone does not meet the definition for employment or unemployment, they are not in the labor force. This would include students who aren’t looking for work as well as retirees. The unemployment rate is calculated as the number of unemployed divided by the labor force, so individuals not in the labor force are also excluded from unemployment rate estimates. The following chart shows how these different categories add up to the total civilian noninstitutional population age 16 and over. It also provides the definition for each category:
