ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study of unemployment in the U.S. conducted by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. According to the study, a 3.9 percent drop is projected in the Las Vegas Valley's job base in Nevada in the coming 11 months. Jeremy Aguero, a principal in Applied Analysis, emphasized that a decline in the job base would lead to an unemployment rate of around 11.5 percent. The study ranked Las Vegas 15th in the country based on the number of potential job losses.
