Las Vegas jobs grow

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

The number of Las Vegas jobs are growing year over year, according to recent labor statistics.

Statewide, jobs increased by 3.3 percent, which correlates to 44,800 new jobs added since August of last year. The largest over the month job gain in the metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) was realized in Reno, at 700. Las Vegas saw a slight reduction in jobs over the month while Carson City remained unchanged and in line with seasonal expectations.

“In August, Las Vegas saw a small decline in employment losing 500 jobs over the month, likely due to a statistical correction following July’s very large gain of 10,300 jobs. Despite the slight reduction in employment in Las Vegas and minor upticks in the Reno and Las Vegas unemployment rates over the month, metro area economic indicators continue to follow positive Statewide trends over the year. Wages and employment have increased and unemployment rates have decreased since this same time last year in the Silver State’s MSA’s which reflects positive signs of growth and diversification in those areas,” said David Schmidt, Chief Economist, for Nevada’s Department of Employment, Training & Rehabilitation.

Additional August 2018 Economic Report Highlights:

Job Growth in August (Seasonally-Adjusted): o Las Vegas lost 500 jobs over the month but is up 32,300 over the year (3.3 percent).

o Reno added 700 jobs over the month and 9,100 over the year (3.9 percent), adding jobs at a faster rate that the State as a whole (3.3 percent).
o Carson City remained unchanged from July but is up 700 jobs over the year (2.3 percent).


o Las Vegas: 4.9 percent; up 0.2 percentage point from July, and down 0.4 percentage point from a year ago.

o Reno: 3.7 percent, up 0.1 percentage point from July; down 0.3 percentage from this time last year.

o Carson City: 4.3 percent, unchanged from July; down 0.2 percentage point from a year ago.
