DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT NEVADA?


  1. Nevada is a state located in the western, mountain west, and southwestern regions of the United States. With an area of 110,561 square miles and a population of about 2.7 million, it is the 7th-largest and 35th-most populous state.

  2. The establishment of legalized gambling and lenient marriage and divorce proceedings in the 20th century transformed Nevada into a major tourist destination. The tourism industry remains Nevada's largest employer, with mining continuing to be a substantial sector of the economy as Nevada is the fourth largest producer of gold in the world.

  3. Largely African American sections of Las Vegas ("the Meadows") and Reno can be found. Many current African-American Nevadans are newly transplanted residents from California, the Midwest, or the East Coast.

  4. In terms of diversity, Nevada is home to many cultures and nationalities. Las Vegas and Reno or Washoe County have evolved to become minority majority cities and counties.

  5. Nevada is the only state where prostitution is legal (under the form of licensed brothels). Prostitution is specifically illegal by state law in the state's larger jurisdictions, which include Clark County (which contains Las Vegas), Washoe County (which contains Reno), and the independent city of Carson City.

  6. The Bureau of Economic Analysis estimates that Nevada's total state product in 2010 was $126 billion. Resort areas such as Las Vegas, Reno, Lake Tahoe, and Laughlin attract visitors from around the nation and world. The state's Per capita personal income in 2009 was $38,578, ranking nineteenth in the nation. As of August 2011, the state's unemployment rate is the worst in the nation at 13.4%.

  7. Nevada is made up of mostly desert and semiarid climate regions, daytime summer temperatures sometimes may rise as high as 125 °F and nighttime winter temperatures may reach as low as -50 °F.
