The birthplace of Malcolm X and Gerald Ford is known for prairies and plains, but not for high pay for its project management professionals. Statewide, Nebraska manages to offer 101% of the U.S. median salary to its transportation, storage, and distribution managers. However, in the city of Lincoln, this figure dips to 91%, and in Omaha, it is 86%, or about $70,000 annually. Natural sciences managers only make 85% of the U.S. average in Omaha, and 89% in Lincoln. These two regions are the main sources of PMP positions in Nebraska, followed by Sioux City.
