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.

And Bank of America is planning to boost KC presence even with other banks moving into KC, a confidence in future economic growth.

We feel that Kansas City is one of the cities we’re in across the country that is poised for economic expansion,” Jankowitz said. “So we’re looking for people to staff our banking centers, personal bankers, financial advisers and commercial lenders.
Bank of America also has been placing financial advisers from Merrill Lynch inside its area branches and is providing personal bankers and financial solutions providers who can help clients with less than $250,000 in net worth plan for retirement.

“If you want to see what the banking center of the future is going to look like for Bank of America, go to our location in Liberty,” Jankowitz said. All of the bank's locations in the Kansas City area eventually will be modernized to look more like the Liberty location, he said.
