The ratio of births to deaths is much higher for the Hispanic. Black and Asian populations,indicative of a generally younger population for these race and ethnic groups. As such,changes in jobs/employment may affect these segments of the population more strongly.The birth/death ratio may be indicative of disproportionately
high in-migration of Whiteretirees
moving to the area. Migration of White retirees to Las Vegas is not tied toemployment, at least not as strongly, as it is with minorities of all ages. This would suggest thatas long as the amenities retirees seek (quality of life, cost of living, etc.) remain favorable,they will continue to move to Las Vegas.The
natural increase in population
, that is births minus deaths, accounted for 16 percent ofthe total population increase in Clark County between 1990 and 2000. Between 2000 and2007, natural increase accounted for nearly 24 percent of the population increase.Las Vegas is likely to continue
to become more diverse
in the future.
PRINCIPAL ACTIVITIES OF THE CITY
Since the 1930s, Las Vegas has generally been identified as a
as well asa
, primarily targeting adults. Relatively inexpensive real estate prompted aresidential population boom in the Las Vegas Valley in the 1990s and is still expanding inevery direction. The population doubling time in the greater metropolitan area was under ten years, since the early 1970s and the Las Vegas metropolitan area now has a populationapproaching two million people. This rapid population growth led to a significanturbanization of desert lands into industrial and commercial areas.
STUDY OF URBANISATION IN THE CITYOF LAS VEGAS, NEVADA
Suggests a negative population growth
thatmight be due to any number of factors,including high death rates, low birth rates,and increased emigration from the area. Itindicates a larger working population in theage group of 25 to 35 years which can bepersons from nearby regions migratingtemporarily for making a living from theample amount of opportunities the city hasto offer.Historically, more than
total population growthhas come from
(in-migration minus out-migration) as theeconomy produces jobs that attractworkers and as retirees continue tofind Las Vegas attractive. Migrationappears to be closely related tochanges in employment. However,the influx of Seniors, many of whomare retired and not seekingemployment, continues to be strong.
