One of only a handful states which levies no personal or corporate income tax, Nevada bases its strong economy on cattle farming, mining, manufacturing and especially tourism - or more precisely on its glittering, world-famous luxury gambling resorts located in Las Vegas, Reno and Lake Tahoe.

Other major employers within the state include the banking and healthcare industries, together with a concentration of high tech firms located in the Reno area.

Despite offering low taxes and cheap energy costs, the state's cost of living index is higher than the national average due mainly to higher food, transportation, and housing expenses.
