Growth vs. foreclosures
Nevada has hit second-fastest growing state in the nation, after Utah. It’s fueled principally by Clark County economic growth, though that county is still plagued by a very high foreclosure rate.
Nevada population growth—usually highest in the nation in the second half of the 20th century—lagged badly during the Great Recession and may even have lost population at one point. Nevada had the highest foreclosure rate in the nation and is still dragged down by that factor.
