OMAHA – University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Research Coordinator David Drozd recently helped the Omaha World-Herald examine a new study, which showed Omaha is one of only a handful of large metropolitan areas offering affordable housing, a strong economy and a high quality of life.
“Drozd figures that standout finish takes Omaha — home to the College World Series, U.S. Olympics Swim Trials (three times), a world-class zoo and four Fortune 500 firms — out of any lacks-sizzle squad and puts it squarely in the ‘sweet spot,’” reporter Cindy Gonzalez wrote.
The study’s author, economist Josh Lehner, evaluated everything from the number of business start-ups in each community to the average slope of land.
