2005 Per-Capita income statistics for Nebraska counties and comparison to counties in other states.

Looks like Lincoln is behind other places. Lincoln's unvisionary economy has a per-capita income of 3% below the national average while Cass (Fargo) is 1% above, Minehaha (Sioux Falls) is 9% above and Olmstead (Rochester, Minnesota) is 14% above.

Despite, the fact Lincolnites are some of the most materialistic people and superficial people in the country it looks like it falls behind so many other core counties of metro areas. Minehaha County, SD 9% above national average. Olmstead County, Minnesota (14% above national average) and yet arrogant snooty Lancaster County (Lincoln) (where the locals call it money town and like to brag about how rich it is) is 3% below the national average

Douglas County, Nebraska (Omaha) Per Capita: 41,219 (20% above national average)
Sarpy County, Nebraska (Bellevue) Per Capita: 32,657 (5% below national average)
Lancaster County, Nebraska (Lincoln) Per Capita: 33,506 (3% below national average)
Hall County, Nebraska (Grand Island) Per Capita: 30,253 (12% below national average)
Buffalo County, Nebraska (Kearney) Per Capita: 28,817 (16% below national average)
Lincoln County, Nebraska (North Platte) Per Capita: 28,082 (19% below national average)
Adams County, Nebraska (Hastings) Per Capita: 25,904 (25% below national average)

Polk County, Iowa (Des Moines) Per Capita: 39,215 (14% above national average
Minehaha County, South Dakota (Sioux Falls) 37,629 (9% above national average)
Cass County, North Dakota (Fargo) 34,978 (1% above national average)
Hennepin County, MN (Minneapolis) 49,566 (44% above national average)
Olmstead County, MN (Rochester) 39,204 (14% above national average)
Segewick County, KS (Wichita) 34,703 (1% above national average)
Tulsa County, OK (Tulsa) 40,079 (16% above national average)

Oh come on! You can't seriously be saying that all of the Lincolnites are the most materialistic and superficial people in the country. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TYPE OF PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN OMAHA AND LINCOLN!

Your argument would be much better made if you would leave the rhetoric out of it. Not to mention there are thousands of counties in the U.S. and you cherry picked a handful to make your comparison.

You also need to take into account how much lower cost of living is in those out-state areas. Do you think that a home sold in Grand Island, NE comes anywhere close to price than an identical home in Denver??
