Denver Rocks!

Industries

Our city’s central location within the United States has made it a natural location as a distribution hub.  As we grew, many technology and telecommunication companies moved in, giving us (today) a high-tech GDP concentration rate that exceeds the national average by 60%,

Our location adjacent to the Rocky Mountains has also encouraged mining and energy companies to not only spring up but remain in the area.

We offer one of the most diverse job markets out of any major metropolitan area, but there is so much more that Denver offers.  For example:

  • Population – over 2.6 million people
  • Major Industries – Aerospace, telecommunications, technology
  • Gross metro product – almost $153 million
  • Median household income – almost $77,800
  • Unemployment – 5.8% (as of November 2013)
  • Job Growth (2012) – 2.6%
  • Cost of Living – 5%
  • Net migration (in 2012) – 21,110

Recognition

People are starting to notice.  Forbes magazine has listed Denver as

  • #6 on the Best Places for Business and Careers list
  • #44 in job growth
  • #20 in terms of education (NOTE: our college attainment rate reached 38.4% in 2012)
  • #134 in the cost of doing business

BusinessWeek listed Denver as #6 in their “America’s Best Cities” ranking.

A lot of this has to do with our vibrant economy and the jobs it creates.

In January 2014, Denver and three other Colorado metro areas were named to the top 20 “best performing cities” by the Milken Institute.

Denver ranked at number 15 (way up from 30th place the year before) .

This index was designed to measure which U.S. cities are promoting economic vitality through job creation and retention, the quality of new jobs and wages/salaries.

Lifestyle

People are moving to Denver, both for the jobs and the lifestyle.  Outdoorsy is the only word to describe out city, and we consistently rank as one of the healthiest and most active places in the nation.  In January 2014, Denver ranked #9 out of the “Top 10 Cities People are Moving To” by Money magazine.
