Nevada Economic Assessment Project (NEAP)

The Nevada Economic Assessment Project (NEAP) aims to provide county, state, and federal agencies, and their partners, with quantitative and qualitative baseline data and analyses to better understand trends in each county’s demographic, social, economic, fiscal and environmental characteristics. The data can be used for land use and project planning, grant writing and overall policy assessment. This project is led by Buddy Borden and Tom Harris, community economic development Extension specialists. Harris is also director of the University Center for Economic Development.

The long-term goal is to develop and maintain an extensive data repository and set of analytical tools that are meaningful, consistent, and verifiable.

Community Assets Surveys

These surveys are one component of the broader Nevada Economic Assessment Project. The project compiles socioeconomic baseline data for every county in Nevada for the purpose of assisting local governments in land-use project planning, grant-writing and policy assessment. Data is compiled from sources such as U.S. Census Data and the Bureau of Economic Analysis to show economic trends and opportunities. However, we also need information gathered from community residents themselves. These surveys are designed to gather your valuable input about what are the strengths (i.e., assets) in your community.
