The different areas of Ne

This is the report of Business
in Nebraska published by Edgar

of Nebraska college of business
According to Palmer’s figures,
the Omaha area has fared the
best judged on four criteria of
population, retail sales, agricul

The Lincoln-Beatrice area has
fared second best (see map)
along with the lower Platte area
of Fremont, Norfolk and Cen
Economic growth and progress

Part of the agriculture loss
in the area was due to poor rain
fall and low cattle prices in 1954
as compared with 1949, the re
port said. (See table.)
Based on the dollar value of
products, the greatest increases
in manufacturing came in the

“The area has jumped to three
and a half times what it was a
few years ago,” Palmer said.
“The northeast area (South
Sioux City to Blair) has increas

Palmer noted an increase in
the Omaha area greater in terms
of dollars but less percentage
wise. Omaha manufacturing
grew over $50 million in the sev
The southwest area shows up
well because crop and price of
wheat were good in 1954 and not
so good in the earlier year.
