More Kansans are commuting to work than were in 2010.
That’s the latest from the Wichita State-based Center for Economic Development and Business Research, which on Thursday released an occasional report on Kansans’ commuting patterns.
“The choices about where we work are driven by the business cycle and what’s happening in that industry,” Pattie Bradley, senior research economist, says. “The choices we make about where to live are much more varied.”
Schools, crime, the cost and availability of housing, other amenities – all factor into the decisions people make.
