Question[edit]

I'm seeing that 12.2% had a female householder with no husband present, but I'm not seeing the rest. What percentage had a male householder with no wife present?— Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.193.240.194 (talk) 03:59, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

  • Maybe that question was not asked on the census. Vanjagenije (talk) 20:09, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Lost Wages[edit]

  • Portal:Las Vegas/Quotes
   What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
   The Entertainment Capital of the World.
   Lost Wages, Nevada.
   Sin City.

I see no mention in the main article of the cute-ish mis-name "Lost Wages". This is a basic factoid of US culture. It is notable enough to belong here. But how or where, I don't know... (see talk page, 2008 and 2013) (I don't know if it offensive, or who would be offended. But it is true and notable, regardless. 100,000 google matches.)

Semi-protected edit request on 27 July 2015[edit]

Please move the word 'first' in the sentence "the first atomic bomb was detonated at the Nevada Test Site," to just in front of the the word 'detonated' as the first bomb was not detonated in Nevada but later bombs were detonated for testing purposes. This adjective is clearly misplaced. 184.99.108.184 (talk) 10:52, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

I wanted to add a new resources for the readers visiting Las Vegas. This is 'the Las Vegas Power Pass. It's the sightseeing card which gives holders free to over 25 Vegas attractions, tours and experiences including Stratosphere Tower Observation Deck, Madame Tussauds, and Grand Canyon West Legacy.

Wealthiest Cities[edit]

I'm removing this phrase from the intro section:
"and is one of the wealthiest major cities in the country"
The listed source:
http://m.reviewjournal.com/trending/silver-state/las-vegas-one-wealthiest-big-cities-us
is misleading. In that source it says "Here are the 33 wealthiest cities in America with populations greater than 500,000" - but there are only 34 cities TOTAL with populations greater than 500,000 (not sure why Detroit isn't on their list) - and Las Vegas comes in at #16 - right in the middle. Dtcomposer (talk) 18:23, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

@Bporter28: Please note the above. The cited article actually shows that Las Vegas is approximately average in terms of wealth among large cities, which hardly seems worth mentioning. Toohool (talk) 19:03, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
