Nebraska’s overall outcomes are positive; having no goal areas below average and only a few single measures in the bottom 10. The state has a strong economy, sound infrastructure and above average environment and public health.

The two notable areas in which Nebraska could improve are in college preparatory testing and in size of government. These areas are, however, minor.

Recommendations
Education and government are the only areas in which Nebraska can improve overall. There is no clear solution in education. State government outcomes can be best improved by focusing on more tech-savvy, open, and transparent government.
