The Clark County econometric general fund revenue forecasting model developed establishes a connection between conditions in the local and national economy. The model was designed to hold economic rationale and econometric modeling procedure. In the model, variation in the predictor variables account for 70% of the variation in the general fund revenue collection.

Econometric models reflect the conditions present in the local, regional, and national economy at the time of development. Since conditions in the economy are subject to change, the relationship of the predictor variable to general fund revenue collections may change in the future.
