Growing Forward - Population Trends in Colorado and Can We Count on the Census?
with State Demographer Elizabeth Garner
What factors impact the population of Colorado and how might they change over time? Colorado is in the midst of a demographic transition that spans trends in income, migration, age, race, and ethnicity. Many of these changes increasingly reflect larger national trends, though demographic and economic factors continue to drive dynamic and uneven patterns of population change across the state. This presentation will provide an update regarding the current and forecast changes to our state’s population and economy as well as information about Census 2020 plans and changes to the data collection process.
Elizabeth Garner is the State Demographer with the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, an agency focused on strengthening the capacity of Colorado’s communities and local governments.
