Northern Colorado Economic Outlook

The northern Colorado economy will continue to be on the rise in 2018 despite slowed growth across the state. Colorado ranked fourth among the states in job growth coming out of the recession, and northern Colorado led the state.

However, the state’s growth has been slowing for a few years, according to Brian Lewandowski, an economist for the University of Colorado Leeds School of Business, and it will continue that trend this year. Despite that slowdown, northern Colorado will remain one of the hottest performing areas economically, Lewandowski said, thanks to a diversity of industries and the rebound of oil and gas prices.
