ehenningsen,

I know what the population is for just Omaha. Nebraska tried in 2005 to get the Omaha/Lincoln area designated as a joint metropolitan statistical area according to the federal standards. This would have opened doors that would help in the development of the area. It did not happen. Here is the link to the story that was in the Lincoln Journal Star:

http://www.journalstar.com/articles/2005/09/11/business/doc4321f03d20a89756939607.prt (broken link)

It still does not matter about statics, the only thing that matters is whether or not a person will like living here. The area can be number one in all the statical data, yet you might not like living there. You still have to experience the life there to find out if you will like it or not. It is like test driving a car to see if you will like it before you buy it.

Ready for some golf?

Kos, you are right on that also...

However the OMaha MSA is about 820,000 the CSA which includes Fremont is now about 860,000 if you were to include Lincoln it would be 1.15 million people, I understand how you are understanding the statistics you know.. I'm just going by www.census.gov population estimates for Combined statistical areas (which is combined wiht the fremont micropolitan area)... here, Ill give you a direct link...

MSA: http://www.census.gov/population/www/estimates/metropop/2005/cbsa-01-fmt.csv (broken link)

CSA: http://www.census.gov/population/www/estimates/metropop/2005/cbsa-06-fmt.csv (broken link) (remember the csa still does not include lincoln)

This tells you the metro and micro areas in the CSA as defined by Population Division, U.S. Census Bureau http://www.census.gov/population/estimates/metro_general/List6.txt (broken link)

Thank you all for such awesome replies. I have to agree with one thing that was said.

#1-Eastcoaters surely do say it like it is, I suppose I'm one of them (that can get old after a while though). Friendliness seems to go out the window.

#2-I would have to visit and enjoy the state as it was recommended.

Thank you for your welcome and I sure do look forward to visiting the land, the people, and meeting the neighbors as it was mentioned. Also, thanks for all the links. I"ll be sure to check them out.

Smile I can drive a ball

I can drive it, but I would say that most of the time the ball has a sandpit magnet on it, or a tree magnet, lol.. and I think I ball golf balls that are too heavy, cause it doesn't go very far, lol.... At least I have fun when I play

Well look on the bright side you get to see a lot more of the golf course when you go into the sand or trees. Some course that I have been on you need a cord attached to you in order to find your way out of the rough. I call it getting my money's worth out of the course. I have fun playing as well. We are off topic here so we best get back on track.

The US Govt meausures all cities the same. ehenningsen is not stretching the truth at all. He's using the same guidelines that all other cities are measured by which puts Omaha's metro at 860,000 and the city itself at 430,000.

DTO Luv I am not saying that there is not over 860,000 people in the Omaha area. In fact there are closer to 1.2 million in the Omaha area, but only 430,000 live in the city limits of Omaha it self. All I wanted to do is not to make a false impression that Omaha had more people than what was right. Plus the point to the post that you have quote was to show that statics are just that numbers that can tell part of a story and not all of it. To me statics are not important in telling about an area. What is important is seeing what the area looks like, in the way that you are showing Omaha with your pictures. To me these are more important and are much more informative than statical data. So keep the pictures rolling DTO Luv you are doing a great job showing Omaha, even if it was 2 million people living there.

Unfortunately no. The closest thing I can think of in regards to that is AmTrak but I don't know how cost effective that would be.
