Nevada's Economy: NV Economy More Firmly in Recovery Than Previously Realized
New employment numbers released in March by the State of Nevada Department of Education, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) show that Nevada's economy fared better in 2010 and 2011 than earlier estimates had indicated. The Nevada economy did not shed as many jobs in 2010 as was previously thought and it added more jobs in 2011 than was previously thought.
The revised data show that the Nevada economy is more firmly in recovery than was previously realized. Similar patterns are found in the revised numbers for the Las Vegas and Reno-Sparks metropolitan areas.
