"Dakota County is a county located in the U.S. state of Nebraska. It is part of the Sioux City, IA–NE–SD Metropolitan Statistical Area. As of 2000, the population was 20,253. The 2005 census estimate was 20,349. Its county seat is Dakota City.

"In the Nebraska license plate system, Dakota County is represented by the prefix 70 (it had the seventieth-largest number of vehicles registered in the county when the license plate system was established in 1922). In August 2009, the Dakota County Board of Commissioners reversed an earlier decision to abandon this system for alphanumeric plates upon introduction of new license plates in 2011. Douglas, Lancaster, and Sarpy Counties remain the only counties with alphanumeric plates in the state.


"Dakota County was formed in 1855. It was named after the Dakota Sioux tribe."
