2007 State of Nevada’s Economy

Here’s the December 2007 Nevada Economy In Brief.


  • At the beginning of the year, Government represented 12.02% of Nevada’s jobs.
  • Although it is just a small portion of overall jobs, it provided 69% of the new jobs created during 2007.
  • Nevada added 5,800 government jobs and 2,600 private-sector jobs during 2007.
  • Statewide, government jobs paid the highest average wages, beating construction and mining, high tech and medicine.

These numbers are on page 3 of the Economy In Brief. Subsequent pages break out individual cities and counties. Most of the government growth was local government employees in the Las Vegas metropolitan statistical area.
