Introduction
  • The purpose of this Strength Index is to measure the prosperity of people in all 105 counties in Kansas.
  • Strength Index is a composite index made up of three indices measuring wealth, income and employment.
  • Strength Index is used to perform a cross sectional analysis of comparing counties with neighboring counties, or a larger county with a regional trade center.
  • Strength Index is also used to perform a longitudinal analysis of creating a progress report for individual or groups of counties over time.
wealth index
Wealth Index
  • Wealth Index is a measure of the relative wealth of the residents of each county.
  • The county per capita wealth is estimated by summing the appraised values of residential property, mobile homes and motor vehicles used in Kansas and dividing it by the adjusted population.
  • The county Wealth Index is the ratio of the county’s per capita over the state per capita wealth. The wealth Index ranges from 0.38 to 1.89. The 105 county average is 0.67.
  • The top five counties in Kansas and their indices are: Johnson (1.89), Miami (1.40), Douglas (1.21), Leavenworth (1.06), and Saline (0.99). The bottom five counties and their indices are: Jewell (0.38), Chautauqua (0.41), Comanche (0.45), Elk (0.47) and Barber (0.50).
personal income index
Personal Income Index
  • Personal Income Index measures the relative level of income in each county.
  • The Index is a simple ratio of county over State per capita incomes.
  • The Personal Income Index ranges from 0.60 to 1.52. The 105 county average is 0.82.
  • The top five counties and their indices are: Johnson (1.52), Sedgwick (1.07), Shawnee (1.06), Saline (0.99) and Marshall (0.99). The bottom five counties and their indices are: Woodson (0.60), Kearny (0.64), Linn (0.65), Marion (0.66) and Anderson (0.67).
employment index
Employment Index
  • Employment Index measures the proportion of the population actively participating in the labor force.
  • The county’s employment is divided by the State-wide value of employment to arrive at the Employment Index. The Employment Index ranges from 0.68 to 1.41. The 105 county average is 1.00.
  • The top five counties with the indices are: Sherman (1.41), Jackson (1.38), Ellis (1.27), Pottawatomie (1.18) and Jewell (1.17). The bottom five counties with the indices are : Linn (0.68), Doniphan (0.78), Greenwood (0.78), Chautauqua (0.79) and Elk (0.80).
  • The Fort Riley total active duty employment of 11,616 was allocated across the adjacent counties of Clay (350), Dickinson (350), Geary (5458) and Riley (5458). Fort Leavenworth active duty military was allocated to Leavenworth (3,226) and McConnell Air Force active duty military was allocated to Sedgwick (2,940).
