United Way of Southern Nevada's Community Reports series provides an opportunity to increase our community's awareness of local issues by presenting data in accessible and locally-relevant ways. Each report explores county-wide and city-level performance on a specific issue across the cradle-to-career pathway, offering descriptions of the data used, summaries of local trends, and recommendations for action. UWSN will use these reports to inform our decision making and empower communities across Southern Nevada to actively participate in the issues and efforts to improve them.
