Study: Las Vegas area to reach 3.4 million residents by 2060 (LV Sun)

A university study is predicting the population in and around Las Vegas will continue to boom over the next four decades.

The Center for Business and Economic Research at UNLV released a report on Wednesday projecting that from today’s 2.4 million residents, Clark County should grow to 3 million in less than 15 years and reach 3.4 million by 2060.

The center creates its annual population forecast on behalf of local government planning and transportation agencies.

Center Director Andrew Woods noted the Southern Nevada population count is just a forecast.

But he said it showed a 17% increase in projected population from just four years ago and called it vital to have information for decisions about schools, public safety and health, utilities, affordable housing and water.

“It’s important that our community leaders are making decisions utilizing the most recent data,” Woods said.

Experts expected the worst for Las Vegas during 2003 SARS outbreak (RJ)

When the SARS virus outbreak spread from China throughout the world in 2003, Las Vegas was in a panic.

How would this mysterious severe acute respiratory syndrome affect the local economy?

As it turned out, the effects of SARS were minimal except for one major technology convention. Local tourism experts have no data on the final impact on tourism by SARS and visitation could have been affected by other events, including lingering effects of the 9/11 attacks and the U.S. war against Iraq that broke out in March 2003.
