Regional Equitable Growth

  • The region has demonstrated economic resilience through the Great Recession, but persistent inequities for its communities of color and low-income residents are a threat to future prosperity. The data analysis suggests focusing on certain priority goals to spur more equitable growth in the Omaha region.
  • Equity Profiles are produced in partnership with leaders working for equitable and sustainable regional and state futures. Each profile presents demographic trends and assess how well regions are doing to ensure its diverse residents can participate in the region’s economic vitality, contribute to the readiness of the workforce, and connect to the region’s assets and opportunities.
