ABSTRACT
A full merger of the city of Omaha and Douglas County in Nebraska could make economic expansion easier within the state's largest metropolitan area. Omaha makes up 84.1% of the population of Douglas County. A merger could allow the city and county to annex those districts as well as several five smaller cities. Annexing the districts could expand Omaha's tax base.
