 A new report by the Las Vegas tourism board shows visitors are spending more money on their trips to Las Vegas.
 
The latest statistics come from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, which issued its visitor profile study results this month.
 
The average amount spent in most expense categories increased in 2015, including lodging, food and drinks, local transportation, shows and sightseeing. Only the amount of shopping dollars for an average trip went down.
 
The length of the stays inched up, to an average of 4.4 days.
 
The data is based on information volunteered by a total of 3,600 random tourists polled at various casino-hotel properties throughout the year.
 
The agency commissioning the yearly survey is funded by county room taxes generated by the hotels it considers partners.
