Nebraska ranks lower than the national average on housing, utilities, transportation and health costs. We boast state-of-the-art healthcare and lower-than-average medical bills. Since almost 50% of households earn between $35,000 and $100,000, we’ve been named the best state for the middle class, which is a title we’ll take with pride. We’re one of the most affordable states to raise a family in.
