Integration, Competitiveness and Prosperity in the Heartland: Omaha's Hispanic and Business Communities

May 11th, 2010

This is the second in AS/COA’s three-part series of working papers focusing on new gateway cities. Integration, Competitiveness and Prosperity in the Heartland: Omaha’s Hispanic and Business Communities looks at immigrants’ economic contributions in Omaha-a city where the Latino population has increased 338 percent and the overall foreign-born population jumped 234 percent since 1990. AS/COA examines how businesses, community groups and the local government are working to promote the socioeconomic integration of Latinos and why this is important for the city’s future competitiveness. The full working paper can be accessed at this link.
