The State of Black Nebraska 2000 is based on a survey sponsored by the Urban League of Nebraska and conducted by the Center for Public Affairs Research at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The State of Black Nebraska Survey was conducted through telephone interviews with 474 adults from African-American households in Douglas, Sarpy, and Lancaster Counties. Together these three counties account for approximately 97 percent of the African-American population in Nebraska. Among the topics examined in the survey were ratings of the Omaha and Lincoln area's quality of life; problems to be addressed by the Urban League of Nebraska; evaluations of economic opportunities, housing, and selected public services and programs; and access to health care.
