Even in a year (2007) with no big new casinos, Nevada continued to grow substantially in population.
A migration study from United Van Lines found that Nevada ranked No. 2 in the nation for its share of inbound moves in 2007. The moving company said 59.4 percent of the Nevada-related trips it made in 2007 were for clients moving to the state. Only North Carolina, with 61.6 percent inbound, fared better.
…though Clark County has fallen from its record levels of population expansion three years ago, it continues to collect a substantial set of new citizens, Gordon said. Three years ago, the Department of Motor Vehicles posted more than 90,000 drivers’ license turn-ins in the county annually. Today, 70,000 to 75,000 residents hand in out-of-state licenses, still a major chunk of population.
