This kind of blows Omaha being a Redneck town right out of the water. From DTO Luv's pictures and this site the Redneck label from WARNYOU will sink faster than the Titanic.

Good work there ehenningsen.

Default sure thing!!

The one statistic that I have been searching for weeks now in the effective buying income statistic, it seems the last time it was released to the public in 2000, omaha was rated #8 in EBI, and since then the wages increased faster than the national average and the cost of living is now even a little bit lower, and am very curious as to what omaha would rank there now...

How does one define Yuppie? Seems this is a hard one to quantify.

Here is how Merrian-Webster defines a yuppie: "a young college-educated adult who is employed in a well-paying profession and who lives and works in or near a large city". Answers.com has this for a difinition for a Yuppie: "A young city or suburban resident with a well-paid professional job and an affluent lifestyle". Now I found this in the Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, that describes a yuppie to be this: "demographic group as selfish, materialistic, and psychologically superficial people with much disposable income". Do we know anyone that will fit into this here category? So guess it is up to you to decide on what or who a yuppie is, but rest assured they ain't rednecks.

LOL! Somehow I don't think it's an official census bureau definition!

You are probably 100% correct, but no manner what you call yourself we all just seem to get along as long as we respect each other, except for one individual who just can't seem to find that certain place in their life. Hope that he finds it some day.

This wasn't a census study, rather one commissioned by the research firm, International Demographics.

An organization representative described yuppies as: "21 to 34 year olds who have a college education and are employed in technical, professional or managerial jobs"

Of course these types of rankings (which Mr. Henningsen has been so diligent in sharing here ), don't mean a whole lot individually ... but when you see a city, consistently appear near the top of so MANY of them... it should begin to show a trend, that there are some good things happening there.
