Manufacturing in Nebraska (E. L. Hauswald)

This article is based on data from the last complete census of manufacturing taken in 1963. Developments subsequent to 1963 have been sufficient to modify the situation described herein. The efforts of the Nebraska Division of Resources have produced results not recorded in the 1963 census. Recent reactivation's of operations related to the national security and expansions of industries in several of the state's communities could not be incorporated in this analysis. The aggregate impact of these developments will not be ascertainable until the next census of manufacturing.
