Statistic of the Month
The American Community Survey is one of few sources that allow evaluation of migration by education level. Nebraska’s figures improved from an outmigration of around 1,600 people age 25+ with a Bachelor’s Degree in 2007 to be an inmigration of about 1,600 in 2009. Nebraska has traditionally suffered from a “brain drain” and that has returned in 2011 and 2012, with the state having a net loss of about 4,000 people with higher education in each year. See a graph of the data here.
The Center for Public Affairs Research is a research and community outreach unit of the UNO College of Public Affairs and Community Service. Survey research support is a key component of CPAR's mission.
CPAR is also the lead agency for the Nebraska State Data Center Program. This program is a cooperative program between the U.S. Census Bureau and individual states. This relationship has resulted in CPAR taking an active role in analyzing and disseminating information from the 1990, 2000 and 2010 Censuses.
