This report is a compilation of statistics having to do with education and manpower in the Omaha Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA). The SMSA consists of Douglas and Sarpy Counties in Nebraska and Pottawattamie County in Iowa. One might question the gathering of statistics using the SMSA as the base areal unit. Statistics for a more traditional political unit such as the City of Omaha are certainly easier to obtain, but for the purposes of this study there are two major reasons for using the SMSA.
