Initial Census 2020 data show a rapidly changing US population not only in its characteristics but also in its geographic shifts. These data reveal critical trends impacting Colorado’s housing, labor force, economy, and service demands for the next few years and decades. This session will provide key findings from Census 2020 for the US and Colorado and discuss the short and long run implications for planners, businesses, and others to help them adapt to the challenges.
