CARSON CITY, Nev. — A new report shows Nevada's Reno-Sparks region is the nation's hardest hit area when it comes to construction jobs lost in the recession.

The report released Wednesday by the Associated General Contractors of America ranks the metropolitan area 337th based on the percentage of construction jobs gained or lost in the past year.

From August 2008 to August 2009, Reno lost 35 percent of its construction work force.

The area of Duluth, Minn., and Superior, Wis., did only slightly better, followed by Tucson, Ariz., Wenatchee, Wash., and Redding, Calif.

On the other end of the spectrum, construction employment in Columbus, Ind., grew 14 percent. Other spots that improved include Anderson, Ind., Tulsa, Okla., Longview, Wash., and Baton Rouge, La.
