In the second quarter of 2022, the Kansas economy contracted at the annual rate of 2.5 percent. Gross Domestic Product fell in 40 states, with Kansas ranking forty-third.
In the second quarter of 2022, the Kansas economy contracted at the annual rate of 2.5 percent in real (inflation-adjusted) dollars, according to statistics released today by Bureau of Economic Analysis, a division of the United States Department of Commerce. BEA says, “Gross domestic product (GDP) by state is the market value of goods and services produced by the labor and property located in a state. GDP by state is the state counterpart of the nation’s GDP, the Bureau’s featured and most comprehensive measure of U.S. economic activity.”
GDP in Kansas for the second quarter was at the annual rate of $209,272 million in current dollars. (The second quarter consists of April, May, and June.) The Kansas growth rate of -2.5 percent ranked forth-third among the states and District of Columbia. The national rate was -0.6 percent, while the rate for the Plains states was -1.6 percent. (For this data, BEA defines Plains states as Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.)
