Economic Disparities in Nebraska

By Nathan Kauffman and John McCoy
September 30, 2020

Economic disparities in Nebraska existed well before the 2020 pandemic. Prior to the pandemic, Nebraska’s economy was well positioned, with low unemployment, steady job gains and an upward trend in household incomes. These economic indicators, however, have differed markedly across the state, particularly in the urban areas of Omaha and Lincoln.
