We looked at all apartments in Omaha and rated them on the number of nightlife-related businesses within a half-mile radius. We used an exponentially decreasing scale based on distance from the apartment. For instance, nightlife options across the street from a specific property would carry more weight than nightlife options a quarter-mile away. Our nightlife-related business counts come from commercially available business listings and may not reflect recent closings or openings.
