A decade of growth helps Denver bounce back

  • ​Denver has added 197,400 private sector jobs in the last decade, propelling the job growth rate to 8th highest among major US metros. In July 2007 Denver had 1,086,300 private-sector jobs; a decade later, that figure currently measures 1,283,700—equating to a growth rate of 18.2%.
  • This decade-long comparison of job growth rates can be used as an indicator of the success markets have had bouncing back from the Great Recession, which officially occurred from December 2007 to December 2009. 
  • Austin is far and away the leader for private-sector job growth, and Texas as a whole has four cities in the top twenty and three out of the top five.
  • The Mile High City’s economy has benefited from broad growth, with gains made across every supersector—a fact not lost on investors and business alike, often placing us on the radar of new-to-Denver (and even international) business decision-makers.
