How do you narrow down what the higher income, and lower income areas are?

Outside of Sumerlin, Henderson. Basically in the meat of Las Vegas Valley, Paradise, Enterprise, and all the unincorporated areas

The city data database is not helpful. The zip codes are large and irregularly shaped, and I am told half zip code can be wealthier than other half, and that there is much wealth disparity in LV.

Does LV have a young hip crowd with good jobs, and are all single like Manhattan, or LA does? If so, where they congregate?

The area around UNLV must have a lot of off campus student housing. It is also near the strip, and the airport. Is that whole area like a college town?

many wealthy areas outside of certain parts of summerlin/henderson are surrounded by lower income areas. Also, the young high income crowds tend to be in the service industry and they hang out late nights on weekdays; non-service high income young people hang out all over the place, not just in one area.

The area around UNLV is more of a drug town than a college town. Some decent blocks but surrounded by some not so decent blocks.

All you have to do is look at house prices. Young, hip, with lots of money is a small minority here. Look at the jobs we have available. Las Vegas is all about serving the tourist and most servants are not paid well.

People in more affluent neighborhoods smoke better weed.

Get the Census data mapper and look by census tract. It becomes obvious.

The area around UNLV....I suggest using Google street view and drawing your own conclusions.

That is a pretty rough part of town.

If you're looking for a younger crowd, you're probably looking at clubs like Omnia & Drai's, or events like EDC or LIB. Maybe Fremont at Gold Spike.

The walkable bar districts are the Strip or Fremont Street. Everything else is spread out.

The closest Vegas has to a college area is UNLV by Maryland Pkwy but nobody is hanging out there walking around at night.

Is that something I can see online and super-impose on a map?

Do all the students party with the hood rats then? Where are the frats and sororities located? Are they right next to the drug stash houses?
