Economic recovery (in terms of jobs) is broad based in Colorado. Some areas contributing to the healthy economy are oil and gas, construction, infrastructure, including work on the new DIA rail line and major projects on Interstate 225 and U.S. 36, and overall increased activity in the Denver metropolitan area.
Denver’s economic recovery has recently been placed third by an Arizona State University report (with Colorado placing fourth overall) among the top 10 cities and states for job growth.
To compare with years past, Colorado ranked in the bottom 10 states for labor-market performance in 2010 after being hit hard by the Great Recession. Since then, Colorado has moved into the third spot, up from fifth in 2012.
Colorado is pointing the nation in the right direction.
