An economic think tank says Nebraska excels in financial well-being, but falls behind much of the nation in access to health care insurance.
The nonprofit Corporation for Enterprise Development gave Nebraska an `A' for financial assets and income in its report released Monday. Nebraska ranked fourth among the 50 states and the District of Columbia in employment, minority-owned business value and net worth by gender.
Net worth by gender measures the disparity in net worth between men and women; in Nebraska, the net worth of men only slightly outpaced the net worth of women.
However, the study suggests Nebraska has fallen behind most other states in health care, with a disproportionate number of women, minorities and low-income families lacking coverage.
