Colorado Has 227,340 Unemployed Seeking Work. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, Accessed 8/17/12)

  • In 2010, Colorado Household Incomes Fell 2.5 Percent To $54,046, Over $5,000 Lower Than They Were In 1999. "Even though the state's economy grew last year, household incomes didn't. They were down 2.5 percent in 2010 from 2009. The survey reports a 2010 median household income in Colorado of $54,046, compared with a 1999 median household income, adjusted to 2010 dollars, of $61,767 and 2009 household income of $55,430. 'That probably reflects two-earner households where one person got laid off or went part time,' said Broomfield economist Gary Horvath."
