How We Determined The Largest Cities In Nebraska

We've been ranking and dissecting cities in the Cornhusker State for over 3 years now -- making this actually the fourth time we've run the numbers. We always use the best data, the US Census. In this case, that means we are using the 2012-2016 American Community Survey.

It what is probably the most simple analysis we run each year, we ranked every place in Nebraska from biggest to smallest. The biggest city this year? That would be Omaha.

The smallest? Ceresco, although there are places smaller than 1,000 people not listed here, so keep that in mind as we take a look at the top ten.
