LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority says they've got a pretty good idea who visited the destination last year: 45 years old married people making $40,000 or more with one-third of them coming from neighboring California.

The agency released its latest visitor survey statistics Monday that provides a glimpse into who were some of the 41.1 million people visiting in 2014.

The survey is a result of 300 interviews with random visitors each month.

The average age of Las Vegas visitors continues to drop. Fewer people say they're coming to gamble, they are budgeting a bit more for wagers, some $530.11 each. The survey says travelers spent an average of $281.88 on food and beverages and $68.83 on transportation, both up compared to the four years prior.
