About this measure:
This measure demonstrates whether Lancaster County's per capita income growth is rising at the Nebraska statewide average.
Why this is important:
This measure of per capita income growth tells us whether we are matching the income growth of the state and therefore are at least as attractive a place to live as the rest of the state.
What is being done:
People search for economic opportunity and a chance to get ahead. Living in an economically vibrant community means more people have more opportunity to increase their well being and provide for their family through a good paying job.
