In 1931,before it legalized gambling, Nevada was a mining and agriculture state with a small population and very little tourism. Today, tourism in Nevada makes up more than a quarter of the state's economy. The renowned Las Vegas Strip is the second most frequented tourist site in the United States, behind Times Square, with over two-thirds of the residents in Nevada residing in the Las Vega metropolitan area. Besides its gambling and hospitality industry, the Las Vegas area still has an agriculture and mining presence that employs about one percent of the population.
