2014 Nebraska Rural Poll, “Earning a Living in Nonmetropolitan Nebraska”

Given this, what types of jobs do rural Nebraskans have? How many rural Nebraskans derive income from self-employment? What motivates rural Nebraskans’ decision to be employed?

This paper provides a detailed analysis of these questions. The complete report can be found athttp://ruralpoll.unl.edu/report14
