Greeley MSA Tops State for Growth

According to 24/7 Wall Street, the Greeley MSA was once again recognized as the fastest-growing metro in Colorado. Our population grew by 32.1% from 2010 to 2020 to 333,983 residents. During that same time, the population of Colorado grew by 15.5%, and the U.S. population increased by 6.7%.

Economic opportunity often drives population changes, and most of the fastest-growing cities in each state have relatively high incomes compared to the state as a whole. The Greeley metro area has a median annual household income of $78,615.

Western Overlook with Trees Greeley ColoradoTo determine the fastest growing city in each state, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed population data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Population and Housing Estimates Program. Metropolitan areas were ranked based on total population change from 2010 to 2020. Data on the components of population growth — births, deaths, international and domestic migration — also came from the PEP program. Supplemental data on employment used to calculate employment growth from 2010 to 2020 came from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Seasonally adjusted data on the May 2021 unemployment rate also came from the BLS. Data on median household income came from the Census Bureau’s 2019 American Community Survey and are one-year estimates.
