New UNO Report on Nebraska’s Population Now Available
Omaha - The 2008 Nebraska Population Report, prepared by the Center for Public Affairs Research (CPAR) at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), is now available online.
Visit the center’s Web site at www.unomaha.edu/cpar/ to download a PDF of the report.
The report is a “one-stop shop” of recent information and statistics about Nebraska’s population, said David Drozd, a research associate with the center.
Among the information published in the report are the most recent 2008 estimates of state and county populations; components of population change such as births, deaths and migration; state and county populations by race/ethnicity; as well as current and historical population changes.
The report takes on additional significance as the country moves further from Census 2000 and closer to the 2010 Census, which is now less than one year away. Given this importance, CPAR has released the report prior to the annual update of city/town population estimates, which will be released this July and will update the report at that time.
The report will be discussed in detail at a workshop on the Census Bureau’s population estimates program on Wednesday, June 3 at UNO. Those interested can visit the center’s Web site for more details.
CPAR is a research and community outreach unit of UNO's College of Public Affairs and Community Service. The center compiles and analyzes various data for Nebraska that add to policy-making discussions.
Editor’s note: To discuss the report in greater detail, contact Drozd at email@example.com or (402) 554-2132.

The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The celebration recognizes the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908. This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come. UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908.
