The Bureau of Business Research (BBR) is pleased to publish its second annual report. The annual report is one of the important ways in which the Bureau fulfills its mission to monitor and analyze the Nebraska economy. The 2006-07 Annual Report contains articles that address many of the major economic trends and policy issues facing the state.

In publishing this report, we draw on expertise from the College of Business Administration at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, the University of Nebraska Rural Initiative, Creighton University, the University of Nebraska at Omaha, the UNL Panhandle Research and Extension Center, and the Nebraska Business Forecast Council. Our authors include faculty members and graduate students from the Department of Economics, plus many others. One of the strengths of the BBR is that we are able to bring together some of the best economists in the state to work on our projects.
