Las Vegas, NV Employment Information

Las Vegas Employment Overview

Las Vegas is the most populous city in Nevada and a globally renowned destination for nightlife, gambling and restaurants. The city calls itself "The Entertainment Capital of the World," but the greater metropolitan area is a diverse economic region that is increasingly attracting families and retirement-age individuals. The city is also a leading destination for conventions and other types of business meetings.

Las Vegas Job Market

More than two-thirds of the jobs in Las Vegas are service-related, and union membership is high. Tourism jobs, gambling and conventions drive the Las Vegas economy, and vibrant restaurant, retail and construction industries are a byproduct of that success. The major tourism attractions are the hotels and casinos, which offer many forms of entertainment beyond just gambling. One of the newest and fastest-growing job sectors in Las Vegas is Internet services, but that largely stems from the success of the gambling sector as well.

Las Vegas Employment Trends

The unemployment rate in Las Vegas has historically been higher than state and U.S. averages. That situation has been exacerbated by 9/11 and the recession. The rate was 7.4 percent at its lowest point in recent times. A positive indicator, however, is that the size of the labor force has remained relatively consistent since the rebound from the recession. Gaming and hospitality jobs have rebounded well, and are expected to continue expanding as people move to the area.

Las Vegas Cost of Living

The cost of living in Las Vegas is 0.7 percent greater than the national average and 5.7 percent greater than the Nevada average. However, the income per capita is 4.6 percent greater than the national average. Transportation in Las Vegas is favorable with an average commute time of 25 minutes. Nearly 12 percent of the workforce carpools, and only 4 percent of workers use some form of mass transit.
