More Young Out-of-Staters Moving to Nebraska
Thursday, October 10, 2019
In recent years, households and students have chosen to relocate in Nebraska at a slightly faster pace in pursuit of education and economic opportunity. A larger number of individuals moving to Nebraska from more distant locations to enroll in higher education or to search for jobs appears to be a key factor that has contributed to a modest improvement in net migration and steady population growth. Looking ahead, a strong and diverse regional economy, in addition to a relatively low cost of living, are likely to remain significant components in both attracting and retaining a highly educated workforce in the state.
