Colliers International’s Omaha office has released its quarterly economic index that showed a slight improvement over last quarter.

The local 159.6 score is 1.6% better than the fourth quarter of 2019, but it doesn’t fully account for the Covid-19 downturn.

Colliers’ Melissa Torrez expects the economic dip to reveal itself in the next quarterly report.

She said the current index score is helpful in showing that, “If Covid hadn’t happened, we would be seeing an upward trajectory right now” in the local economy.
