National Association of Home Builders - Nebraska Housing Study
Program Description

National Association of Home Builders – Nebraska Housing Study was undertaken in 2012 in an effort to understand the economic benefits of housing within the State of Nebraska. The study is comprised of two distinct reports:


The Economic Impact of Home Building in Nebraska – Income, Jobs and Taxes Generated
"Home building generates economic impacts in the state where it takes place, including income and jobs for residents of the state, and revenue for the state government and local governments within the state. It also typically imposes costs on state and local governments—such as the costs of providing primary and secondary education, police and fire protection, and water and sewer service. Not only do these services require annual expenditures for items such as teacher salaries, they typically also require capital investment in buildings, other structures, and equipment that state and local governments within the state own and maintain."

The Economic Impact of Home Building in Nebraska – Comparing Costs to Revenue for Local Governments
"Home building generates substantial local economic activity, including new income and jobs for residents, and additional revenue for local governments. The National Association of Home Builders has developed a model to estimate the economic benefits. The model captures the effect of the construction activity itself, the ripple impact that occurs when income earned from construction activity is spent and recycles in the local economy, and the ongoing impact that results from new homes becoming occupied by residents who pay taxes and buy locally produced goods and services. In order to fully appreciate the positive impact residential construction has on a community, it’s important to include the ripple effects and the ongoing benefits." (for the full report click here)
