Our Changing Landscape
Over the past several decades in Nebraska, where and how people live has changed dramatically. In this Two Nebraskas: Our Changing Lanscape infographic you can see that metropolitan Nebraska is younger, more diverse and more educated. However, some attributes of life in Nebraska transcend county boarders, such as the high rate of labor force participation and that most Nebraskans are Nebraskans for life.
Legislative Planning Committee
Since 2009, CPAR has provided data to the Planning Committee of the Nebraska Legislature. The Planning Committee serves to identify the trends, opportunities, and challenges that are shaping Nebraska, and provide their feedback on next steps to the legislature. In November, we presented data on the rainy day fund and on changing demographics of Nebraska. Read a Lincoln Journal-Star article about that meeting; and view the brief.
