Economic Analysis

The Governor's Finance Office Economist forecasts Nevada’s economy and General Fund revenue and presents those forecasts to the state’s Economic Forum, which in turn sets the forecasts binding the Governor’s Executive Budget and the Legislature.  The economist participates in forecasting other state revenues and tracks revenues during the year, comparing them to the forecasts, and updating the Budget Director and the Governor’s Office how much revenues are ahead of or behind the forecast.

Silver Sage Revenue Report

Once per month, the Economic Analysis unit of the Governor’s Finance Office provides an overview of Nevada’s economy in the Silver Sage Revenue Report. The report presents information specific to State General Fund revenues as well as statistics, charts and tables involving inflation, the gaming industry, taxable sales, employment and salaries.
