Nevada’s population is expected to grow by 52,000 people this year. Despite the economic downturn there has been a continued increase of people moving to Nevada in 2021 and 2022. The majority of people relocating to Nevada are Californians. According to Professor Stephen Miller of UNLV’s CBER, falling home prices across the Mountain West are another reason for relocations as well as lower cost of living. New infrastructure investments may also be a factor for the growth in population. It is predicted by UNLV CBER that Clark County’s population will be 2.85 million by 2040 and 3.43 million by 2080. Job growth is forecasted to grow by 33.6% from 2022 to 2080 along with Clark County’s annual GPD rate growing by 1.8 percent from 2022 to 2080.
