About Us

The Bureau of Business Research (BBR) is an applied economic and business research entity of the College of Business at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Located in the Department of Economics, the BBR exists to accomplish two primary purposes. First, it provides relevant information and insightful data on economic conditions, in Nebraska, the Great Plains, and the nation as a general service to individuals and businesses in the state. Second, the BBR provides economists with practical opportunities to conduct applied economic research and trains students of economics and business in the conduct of applied research on timely economic and business topics. The BBR regularly publishes reports summarizing its sponsored research studies and also publishes outlooks and analyses in the newsletter The Nebraska Economy.
