Business in Nebraska vol. 54, no. 643
The continuing strong momentum in the state's economy is outpacing the adverse effects of depressed farm commodity prices, especially in the metro counties. In the latest Nebraska Quarterly Business Conditions Survey (NQBCS) 41 percent of the respondents statewide indicated that 2nd quarter 1999 revenues exceeded year-ago levels, which is statistically unchanged from the 1997-1998 quarterly average (Table 1). Only 28 percent reported 2nd quarter 1999 revenues below year-ago levels; this too, is statistically unchanged from the 1997-1998 quarterly average.
