Report: Colorado Economy On Pace To Keep Growing In 2019

People mill around a job fair for electricians in Northglenn, Colorado in August 2017.

A recent report says the Colorado economy will continue to grow next year, but perhaps at a slower pace.

The Daily Camera reports the 2019 Colorado Business Economic Outlook Forecast shows that Colorado, despite slower growth, will still be in the top 10 states next year for employment growth.

The report, compiled by the Business Research Division of Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado, says job growth is expected to be slowest since 2011, but the state will still add 53,200 workers in 2019, growth of 2 percent.

Richard L. Wobbekind, executive director of the Leeds Business Research Division, says wages in the state also are expected to increase above the national average.
