Well the most rural states don't have that much of a rise of unemployment.

Farming is done in every state, New York included. I doubt unemployment rates have much to do with farming this time of year in Nebraska. Not everyone in Nebraska is a farmer - in fact, the world's second richest man lives in Omaha. I'm only throwing that out there because your post was stereotypical of someone who doesn't know much about Nebraska, but just assumes that everyone is a farmer, and that there are cornfields everywhere.

After the drop in stock market prices, Warren Buffet may no longer be the second richest man in the world. But that fact aside, this is good news for the people in Nebraska as it may help the state to attract some new residents.

Last year he was the richest man in the world, this year he's second to Bill Gates.

Yes, in fact, about half of all Nebraskans live in the Lincoln and Omaha MSAs.

According to my data 80% of all Nebraskans live in either a metropolitan or micropolitan county.

Ha ha, I feel bad as I was thinking the same thing as Rachael. That was a great reply! lol Nebraska is a hard state to imagine life in if you haven't been there I guess. Have you lived there? What's it like? I wouldn't mind peeking into it!
