LAS VEGAS (AP) — A statistical snapshot of Las Vegas visitors finds a younger crowd with fewer gamblers spending more money on food and drink than five years ago.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority released a visitor profile for 2013 on Tuesday that found that almost four of five visitors were married, and almost nine out of 10 earned more than $40,000 a year.

The 103-page report, based on thousands of surveys conducted throughout 2013, finds the average age of visitors now is just under 46. That's four years younger than in 2009.

Their average spending on food and drink during a four-plus day stay was just under $279, and 72 percent attended shows.

The proportion who gambled was 71 percent — down from 83 percent five years ago.
