OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Officials say there is a sizeable workforce in northeast Nebraska, northwest Iowa and southeast South Dakota interested in new jobs.

The Nebraska Departments of Labor and Economic Development released the report on Thursday. Officials say the information could help attract new businesses to the area.

The report says 116,500 people in the area say they might be interested in a new job if it was a good fit with their skills and met their salary and schedule expectations. That figure includes some people who already have jobs.

The study focused on Columbus, Fremont, Norfolk, South Sioux City, Wayne, and West Point, as well as northwestern Iowa and southern South Dakota. It included 428,094 adults in the area.
