What Immigration Means to Nevada (Infographic)
Nevada has experienced positive growth throughout the state fueled by immigration. Immigrants are a vital part of the state’s labor force across sectors, accounting for nearly 40 percent of all workers in the hotel and food services industry as well as over a quarter of those in the arts, entertainment, and recreation industry. Nearly 20 percent of the state’s residents are immigrants themselves, while another 17 percent are native-born U.S. citizens with at least one immigrant parent. As workers, business owners, taxpayers, and neighbors, immigrants are an integral part of Nevada’s diverse and thriving communities and make extensive contributions that benefit all.
