CEDBR conducts research on Kansas' retail and service sector gaps, as part of this research CEDBR has analyzed sales in the accounting services sector in every county throughout Kansas. The gap analysis produces a ratio by dividing accounting services sales in one county by population-adjusted accounting services sales in peer counties. If this ratio is larger than 100 it indicates a county has more accounting services sales than their peers, if the ratio is smaller than 100 they have fewer sales than their peers.
Johnson County and Sedgwick County have the highest overall accounting services employment. Chautauqua, Wallace, and Marshall Counties had the highest peer sales ratios with each county's estimated population-adjusted sales almost five times their peers counties.
