Las Vegas Valley Population Statistics

Home > Hotels > Nevada > Las Vegas > Las Vegas Population
The population statistics of Las Vegas reflect many factors and trends in the US. First Las Vegas reflects many metropolitan areas in that was is called Las Vegas, for example the Las Vegas Strip, is not officially a part of Las Vegas. There are many smaller municipalities such as Paradise, Spring Valley and Sunrise Manor, that comprise the place called Las Vegas.

Second, the rapid population growth of Las Vegas in the latter half of the 20th Century reflects the population shift of the United States from colder, industrial places, to what is called by some, the Sunbelt and an influx of immigrants from Latin America and other places. This included rust-belt economic refugees, retirees seeking good weather and favorable cost of living circumstances and Hispanic and Asian groups.

The population statistics for Las Vegas also seem to reflect the boom-and-bust cycle common to many Western cities during the 19th Century. Las Vegas has been unable to escape the affects of the downturn in the national economy. Once considered immune to recessions Las Vegas, at the end of the first decade of the 21st Century (and beyond), has one of the highest unemployment rates of a major metropolitan area in the United States. This has affected population growth and what many consider to be a decline in population.
