Kansas City Metro Disparity Update Report: State Line Is The New Troost?!?!?

Tale of two communities amid this winter of our discontent . . .

"Several factors contribute to the disparity between the neighbors. Johnson County’s median household income is $81,100, and its poverty rate is 5.6 percent. Jackson County’s median household income is $50,700, with a 15.6 percent poverty rate. Unemployment in both counties is below the national average of 6.6 percent, but Jackson County is at 5.7 percent and Johnson County at just 3.5 percent."
