What does number of establishments mean? Number of businesses?

Essentially yes, that represent the employment base in next column. So KS side probably has more small startups representing lower employment boost. MO side employment boost likely mostly from existing biz.

Or simply an influx of LLC filings to take advantage of tax loopholes?

Could be.

Also note that Pro Biz was the largest raw category increase, and by far on the MO side of metro. MO side added 7300 Pro Biz jobs (8%) while KS side added only 900 (1%). In the 90s and 00s, KS side was growing ProBiz at a faster rate than MO side.
