According to CommercialCafe, Omaha is ranked as the 5th best midsized metro area for millennials.
Des Moines was given the top spot while San Jose and Austin were the top two large metro areas for millennials.
The Omaha (NE-IA) metro’s fifth-place finish was due to its consistently above-average showings across all metrics, rather than any individual standout performance.
Having said that, Omaha landed a podium finish in the regional price parity indicator, offering its Millennials the third-lowest living costs among the list of midsized metros, as well as the value of 70% employer-based health insurance coverage.
The city also ranked fifth in terms of both median Millennial household income ($80,495 per year) and unemployment rate (2.5%).
