This study of the future labor supply and demand in the Omaha area was conducted for the Economic Development Council of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce by the Center for Applied Urban Research, University of Nebraska at Omaha, with Dr. Murray Frost as the principal investigator. The study included: (1) an analysis of projections for the supply and demand for labor in 1990 made by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor; the Nebraska Department of Labor; and other sources; and (2) a survey of the 64 largest private and public employers in the Omaha area. The methodology and findings were reviewed by staff at the Chamber of Commerce and by an independent consultant, Professor Peter Eaton, Department of Economics, University of Missouri at Kansas City.
