According to a new survey by the Public Religion Research Institute, “Nebraskans are more likely than Americans overall to be born in the U.S. and to live in the community in which they grew up, but they are simultaneously more likely than Americans overall to report that they live in a community with many new immigrants. Like Americans overall, Nebraskans are divided starkly along party lines over the meaning and future implications of these changes.” notes PRRI CEO Robert P. Jones.
The survey showed results that nearly 46% of Nebraskans live in the communities where they grew up, compared to 33% of Americans. A majority of 52% say they have spent their entire lives in the state, while another 25% have lived in the state for 20 or more years.
Almost one in four Nebraskans say they live in a community with many new immigrants, and an additional 37% say they live in a community with at least some new immigrants—rates significantly higher than Americans overall.
