Labor Force Data

The State of Colorado has two great websites that can help you find data on our state’s labor force.

The Colorado LMI Gateway features detailed labor market information and employment data for Colorado. Visit the site’s Labor Force page to view data on employment by area; unemployment; seasonally adjusted employment data; and graphs, maps and tables of Colorado’s labor force. On the LMI main page you can also find data on job growth, top industries and occupations, income data, consumer price index, and more.

The State Demography Office’s Labor Force page includes recent census data, labor force participation by age and gender, data on commuting and county-to-county worker flows, and a Colorado labor force forcast to 2040 (data in the forecast can be compared back to 1979).
