Influx of newcomers drops 21.4 percent in June



Migration to Clark County in June declined considerably when compared with the same month last year, as measured by the number of out-of-area drivers’ licenses traded in for local ones.

State records showed that 1,026 people swapped out-of-state and out-of-county driver’s licenses in Clark County last month, a decrease of 21.4 percent from 1,305 licenses exchanged in June 2010.

The downward trend also hit the rest of the state, though to a lesser degree. Statewide, 11,870 people traded in licenses from out of the area, a 12.6 percent decline from 13,586 the year before.
