Nebraska Employment Profile

Located in heart of the Midwest region, Nebraska is truly right-in-the-middle-of-it-all. The Cornhusker State has a diverse economic base of industry clusters in addition to its traditional agricultural and location strengths. Also driving Nebraska’s economy are rising financial and business administrative services, and the more technology‐based sectors of biosciences, renewable energy, R&D and engineering services, and software and computer services. (Source: Nebraska Department of Economic Development)

Based on 2013 statistics, the government sector employs the greatest percentage of workers in the state, followed by health care and social assistance; retail trade; manufacturing; and finance and insurance, respectively.

The largest employers in the state (as of December 2012) include the State of Nebraska (excluding University), University of Nebraska, Offutt Air Force Base, Wal-Mart, Alegent Health, Omaha Public Schools, Union Pacific Corp., Lincoln Public Schools, Tyson Foods, Inc., and First Data Corp. (Source: Merritt Research Services, LLC)
