Traditionally, the Center’s research agenda has focused on research issues relevant for state and local economic policy and state and local economic development. The research agenda has also typically had a Kansas-centric focus, but often includes state-by-state research to help inform that focus. Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the (sub-national) economics of: development, education, energy, environmental amenities, health care, regulation, taxation, transportation, and water resources.
