In February 1986, the Northeast Nebraska Economic Development District (NNEDD) contracted with the Center for Applied Urban Research GCAUR) of the University of Nebraska at Omaha to conduct a business survey related to training needs and business conditions in the region. The Northeast Technical Community College and NNEDD designed the survey instrument to collect information which would be useful in economic development program planning and determining training needs and areas of interest. A total of 896 questionnaires were mailed to businesses in the region during February by CAUR and 208 responses were received; a response rate of 23.2 percent.
