The national economy slowly started to improve last year, but Nevada's losing streak continued well into 2010.
The housing market's boom and bust was most extreme in Nevada. By the end of 2010, one in every 99 houses was in foreclosure.
Declines in the construction and real estate sectors were so severe, they far outweighed slight pickups in business at hotels, restaurants and mining companies.
In April, Nevada had the country's highest unemployment rate, at 12.5%.
