The Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) is in the process of releasing a series of reports on the characteristics of the Southern Nevada economy and community. Released as Community Indicators, these reports will cover such important topics as demographics, characteristics of the region, economy, economic diversification, education, health, and economic clusters. Many of these reports will combine data from surveys that CBER has conducted with information that CBER has obtained from other sources. Some will rely strictly on information that CBER has obtained from other sources. All strive to promote a greater understanding of the Southern Nevada economy and community.
