Summary

In closing, here are some current Nevada statistics:

Nevada’s population in 2008 was estimated at just over two-and-a-half million. It had grown 30% since 2000, had a pretty even ratio in terms of gender, and was over 80% white. Over 80% were high school graduates, but only 18% had college degrees. Almost 61% of the people owned their own homes.

The median household income in 2007 was around $55,000.

Nevada’s area is around 110,000 square miles, with a population density of only 18 persons per square mile.

There hasn’t been any really big news in Nevada recently, but the gambling industry has experienced a slow period during the current recession. Other than that, the most interesting news story in the state is that the attorney general has filed charges against Acorn: http://www.findingdulcinea.com/news/politics/2009/may/Nevada-s-Attorney-General-Files-Criminal-Charges-Against-ACORN.html
