The BBR report on the high-wage, high-growth producer services industry in Nebraska includes information technology, engineers, accounting firms, advertising, other consulting and legal services.
The BBR report on the skills gap in the Omaha area provides information on labor “shortages” in the economy, including in information technology occupations. These reports are produced for other areas of the state as well; we are working on the Panhandle, Tri-Cities and Southwest Nebraska region this year.
The Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey (NASIS) is an omnibus survey where a representative sample of Nebraskans are asked to give their opinion on a variety of topics and issues. NASIS data are used by a wide range of organizations for policy and program planning and by the faculty and students of the University of Nebraska for research.
Each year, Nebraska Extension produces impact reports that showcase the work conducted by its professionals on behalf of Nebraskans throughout the state. The 2019 impact reports are available here.
The annual poll gives rural Nebraskans a platform to voice their opinions and concerns on wide-ranging and important topics, including: agricultural policy, energy, the environment, climate change, government, crime, education, health care, housing, immigration, taxes, community development strategies, technology and work. A topical index of the report subjects associated with the Rural Poll is available here.
