Denver Among the American Cities Adding the Most Jobs

The United States nonfarm employment increased by 222,000 in May, as the unemployment rate ticked up slightly to 4.4%. Unemployment remains close to its lowest point in a decade.

Why Colorado Has the Best Economy in the Nation

Denver International Airport is the Largest Employer in Colorado

Most state economies are relatively diverse, yet it is not uncommon for a single industry to have an outsized impact on the state’s economy and labor market. In some cases, a single company employs a significant share of the state’s workforce. State governments tend to be the largest employers in each state. There are more […]

With 2016 unemployment rates of 2.7%, New Hampshire and South Dakota replaced North Dakota as the states with the lowest unemployment rates — the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Tuesday. New Mexico’s 6.7% unemployment rate is the highest in the country, pushing West Virginia and Nevada out of that position. National unemployment figures were […]

Denver Has America’s 11th Lowest Unemployment Rate

The U.S. labor market has improved remarkably in recent years, as the unemployment rate has fully returned to pre-recession levels. The national unemployment rate reached 4.7% in December, the same as it was in November 2007, the month before the recession officially began. That recovery, of course, has been far from even. In many U.S. […]
