THE NEBRASKA ECONOMY--MANPOWER AND ECONOMIC GROWTH.
WYKSTRA, RONALD A.
NEBRASKA'S POPULATION AND ECONOMIC GROWTH WERE COMPARED WITH THAT OF THE NATION FROM 1910 UNTIL THE PRESENT, WITH SPECIFIC ATTENTION TO NEBRASKA'S ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN RECENT YEARS. PUBLISHED MATERIAL WAS THE SOURCE OF THE DATA. FROM 1900 TO 1960, NEBRASKA'S POPULATION GROWTH RATE WAS ONE-THIRD THE NATIONAL RATE. THE NET OUT-MIGRATION AVERAGED 10 PERCENT OF THE AVERAGE POPULATION IN EACH OF THE THREE MOST RECENT DECADES. THE AVERAGE ANNUAL RATE OF GROWTH OF TOTAL REAL PERSONAL INCOME WAS 2.28 PERCENT, 1.17 PERCENTAGE POINTS BELOW THE NATIONAL RATE. THIS HAS BEEN INFLUENCED UNFAVORABLY BY THE ORIENTATION OF THE NEBRASKA INDUSTRY MIX TOWARD ECONOMIC SECTORS WHICH HAVE BECOME RELATIVELY LESS IMPORTANT TO THE NATION. RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDED--(1) PASSING OF AN "ECONOMIC GROWTH ACT," (2) CREATING AN ECONOMIC ADVISORY COUNCIL, (3) ESTABLISHING A DIVISION OF ECONOMIC ANALYSIS WITHIN THE EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT OF THE STATE GOVERNMENT, (4) ELEVATING THE PRESENT NEBRASKA DIVISION OF RESOURCES TO THE STATUS OF DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, (5) DRAFTING AND IMPLEMENTING A DETAILED ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PLAN, (6) PLANNING VOCATIONAL AND GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS, AND (7) ENCOURAGING INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT ON A SELECTIVE BASIS.
