LAS VEGAS (AP) — Clark County's population has bounced back from its recession dip and is now as high as it's ever been.

That's one of the findings published in the 34th annual Las Vegas Perspective, which reviews market trends and was officially unveiled Wednesday at a ceremony keynoted by Nevada first lady Kathleen Sandoval.

The county's population base hit 2.06 million in 2013, which is 2.7 percent higher than it was in 2012.

Henderson posted the highest annual population gain at 3.3 percent, while Las Vegas grew 2.1 percent and North Las Vegas grew 2.4 percent since 2012.

Report authors say the population growth signals southern Nevada's ability to move beyond the challenges of the recession, and is an important step toward more stability in the local economy.
