If you have a handy link to this info I would love to see it and learn more.
(I can hunt for it but it seems like you might know right where it is at)

Much appreciated.

Regardless, the KC Metro area is a perfect fit for me.

For those people that want to know wether they should move to Kansas. I am from New York State. I moved down here in 1980. At that time I thought that I had moved to Hell. That was the hottest year since I moved here. Since then I have adjusted to the weather, and have made many great friends. Most of my famly still live in New York. But I will never move back to New York. Gypsum Kansas is my home. My Children have grown up here and gone to SES and I love it here. That is just one opinion but that is how I feel.

That is what I like about a small town. I live in a small town, 400 to 500 hundred in the surrounding area. We have 4 churches in the area, have went to 3 of them and was greeted very freindly in all of them.Small town in Kansas, that is the place for me.

I up-rooted the family from Northern Miami County in 1994 and have been to Kentucky, Houston and now Dallas. Moving away was the worst decision I've ever made.
I'll return one day and I hope my health holds out so I might once again enjoy the rural life that Kansas has to offer. Fishing and hunting on the way to and from work was worth all the wealth in the world.
People in general are friendly and great neighbors.

Yes, that is very nice area. Unforunately, the Kansas City metro sprawl has found its way into northern Miami County now. You would probably have to look at rural areas further removed from the KC influence.

Kansas is not benefiting as much as the northern plains states from the energy boom that has recently ocurred. A lot of the natural resources in KS like natural gas are now at the depletion stage on the production curve. Some new oil wells are being drilled, but most of the big finds have happened in the early to mid 20th century. Based on the updated trends the highest out-migration rates continue to be in the frontier counties of northwest KS, and the highest in-migration rates are in urban eastern Kansas (Johnson County).
