    The Institute for Policy & Social Research (IPSR) at the University of Kansas is pleased to announce that the 51st Edition of the Kansas Statistical Abstract (KSA) is now available.  The abstract is available exclusively online as a PDF file with individual pages available in Microsoft Excel and PDF. For more information and access to the data, please visit http://ipsr.ku.edu/ksdata/ksah/.

    The 51st Edition of the Kansas Statistical Abstract (KSA) contains data collected through August 2017 for sixteen categories of information: Agriculture; Banking and Finance; Business, Industry, and Exports; Climate; Communications and Information; Courts, Crime, and Public Safety; Education; Employment and Earnings; Energy and Natural Resources; Government; Housing and Construction; Income; Parks and Recreation; Population; Transportation; and Vital Statistics and Health.

    Please note: IPSR updates the Enhanced Online Edition throughout the year as new data becomes available. This edition offers individual chapters, tables, and maps, with the latest data, in PDF and Excel formats at: http://ipsr.ku.edu/ksdata/ksah/ksa34.shtml.

    The KSA contains over 500 pages of data—tables, maps, and graphs—on Kansas. While all the data is fascinating, several things stood out this year. The table on Sales Tax Rates by Location of Sale in Kansas, by County (p. 309) shows an increase use by communities in special taxing districts. The map on Wind Farms and Wind Resource Potential for Kansas (p. 261) illustrates the energy capacity of wind farms throughout Kansas. What do you find interesting? We appreciate your feedback! -- Genna
