Best Performing Cities: Denver

Dec 26, 2014

According to an annual report released by the Milken Institute, Denver and three other Colorado metro areas are among the nation’s top 20 best-performing cities of 2014.

The report aims to identify where America’s jobs are created and sustained.

The Denver-Aurora-Broomfield metro area comes in at No. 12 on the list, up from No. 15 in 2013.

The best performing cities were ranked by these categories:

1. How well they are creating and sustaining jobs
2. Rates of growth in employment, wages, and production
3. Health of local high-tech industries

In the individual categories used to compile the ranking, Denver scores highest (No. 10 out of 200 metros) on having a high concentration of tech industries. It comes in at No. 14 for one-year job growth and No. 16 for one-year wage-and-salary growth.
