This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "Components of Change in Sarpy County," by Roger Corbin.

Demographic change in Sarpy County has been dramatic for the past several decades. From each period from 1950 through 1970 the county at least doubled in population. In 1980 however, with the 1970 base number of 66,200, the dramatic rate of gain of the previous decades simply could not be maintained. (See Table 1.) The recorded growth in the 1970's nevertheless was very significant with a gain of 19,815 or 29.9 percent, numerically larger than the 1950-1960 increase.
