Producer services providers are firms that sell services primarily to the business community rather than to individuals and households. Accounting firms, consultants, and computer design services are prominent examples of producer services businesses. Given their importance as suppliers to the broader business community, producer services are a critical segment of the economy. Many producer services industries also are a rapidly growing and pay high wages. The producer services sectors in fact are the principal source of high wage job growth in our evolving service economy.

For all of these reasons, this article highlights the performance of the producer services sector in Nebraska. In particular, we examine the growth in producer services in the nation and in Nebraska in the last decade, and explore whether or not the state of Nebraska has captured a significant share of employment in producer services.
