Research Allies for Lifelong Learning

More than half of Nevada adult learners are out of work or not in the labor force. Nevada adult learner unemployment rose from 28.8% in 2006-7 through a high of 50.3% in 2009-10 and remained steady. The percent of adults not in the labor force also rose from 2008-9 through 2010-11, which may be an indicator of adults who have given up on looking for full-time work.
