2010 Greater Lincoln Region Report
Seward County is a participating member of the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development: A nine county regional economic development group encompassing the southeast corner of Nebraska near Lincoln. In 2010 the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development and other regional partners contracted with Angelou Economics to conduct a study of the common and unique characteristics of the 12-county area, identifying the underlying economic factors that define it as potentially viable economic region.
The study identified:
- A set of high-growth high-wage industry clusters that serve as “targets” for the region;
- Occupations within these target industries that are not strongly concentrated in the region currently (as a means for focusing future workforce job training initiatives);
- A series of challenges that the region will face in pursuing these industry opportunities and the pipeline of talent that supports them;
- An initial strategy of opportunities as a foundation for the regional strategic plan.
