Nevada State Bank's 2019 Small Business Survey Report is now available online. The sixth annual survey was conducted by Applied Analysis, which contacted more than 400 small business decision makers representing Nevada businesses with annual sales ranging from $250,000 to $10 million. 

The bank's survey asked questions about the economy, business environment, revenue and profitability, employment, community involvement, and the overall outlook for small businesses in Nevada.

Here are just a few highlights in the 2019 survey report:

  • Just over 71 percent of small business respondents believe the national economy is heading in the right direction. However, this is a decrease of 11.2 percentage points from 82.6 percent a year ago.
  • More than 39 percent of respondents are in favor of using incentives to attract new businesses and investments to the state.
  • Roughly 38 percent of respondents believe that bringing major sporting events to Southern Nevada will have a positive impact on their small business.
  • The top concerns for businesses continue to be healthcare costs, government regulation and business taxes—while their biggest challenge is hiring and retaining quality employees.
