Omaha is the largest city in Nebraska and the 44th largest in the United States. The city has an estimated population of 446,000 people and covers 130 square miles in Douglas County on the Mississippi river. Area code 402 contains all of Omaha and almost the entire eastern half of Nebraska as well. The city is one of the most important in the state not only because of the size, but also the strategic location 135 miles from Des Moines, 185 miles from Kansas City, and 432 miles from St. Louis.
Although Lewis and Clark passed through the area on their western expedition, Omaha wasn’t officially founded until 1854 and incorporated in 1857. Omaha’s location on the Mississippi River and Transcontinental Railroad helped the city grow quickly during the 1800’s as the US population continued to move westward throughout the country.
The city was later hit hard by the Great Depression, but World War II and the construction of the Offutt Air Force Base aided the recovery. The low cost of living and diverse economy have helped Omaha thrive in the past few decades, and the city is even home to Warren Buffet, one of the richest men in history. Now, Omaha is the 44th largest city in the US and one of the most important in the Midwest.
The Omaha area code is home to four Fortune 500 companies and five on the Fortune 1000 list. Berkshire Hathaway, a multinational home services and construction company, came in at #2 on the 2017 roundup, followed by Union Pacific, Peter Kiewit Sons’, Mutual of Omaha Insurance, Green Plains, TD Ameritrade Holding, Valmont Industries, West, and Werner Enterprises.
Other major players in the city include the First National Bank of Omaha, one of the largest privately-held banks in the country, the engineering and architecture firm DLR Group, PayPal, LinkedIn, and the Gallup Organization. The top five biggest employers in area code 402 are the Offutt Air Force Base, CHI Health, Omaha Public Schools, the Methodist Health System, and Nebraska Medical Center.
The unemployment rate in the Omaha area code is only 3.4%, which is significantly lower than the US average of 5.2%. Additionally, the city is expecting job growth of almost 38% over the next ten years. The average household income in area code 402 is $49,000, which comes in just under the national average of $53,000 per year. The most common occupations for Omaha residents are health care and social assistance, retail trade, and manufacturing, and 19% of the population makes over $100,000 annually.
Omaha was ranked #7 on the Forbes list of “Best Cities to Raise a Family” in 2012 and moved up to #4 on the same list in 2014. Popular annual events in the Omaha area code include the NCAA Men’s College World Series, the Nebraska Balloon and Wine Festival, Taste of Omaha, the Summer Arts Festival, and more.
