Analyst’s Assessment The first quarter of 2012 shined a few bright spots on what has been a challenging recovery cycle. Overall employment trended in a positive direction, a condition absent from the economic landscape during most of the past three years. New job creation has helped push the unemployment rate down to its lowest level since 2009.

Nevada Economic Overview

New business Filings Exceed 15,000 in Q1 2012


Core employment – total employment excluding the construction and government sectors – has reported year-over-year gains for 21 consecutive months. The fact that many private sector employers are expanding is an encouraging sign.

With over 15,000 new business entity filings recorded in the first quarter of 2012, the data suggest that investors and entrepreneurs are continuing to seek out Nevada as a viable place to do business and/or take advantage of the investment opportunities within the Silver State. The economy has clearly distanced itself from the bottom and appears to be gaining some momentum.
