   According to the 2020 U.S. Census, from 2010 to 2020, the following are the top10 fastest growing cities in Colorado by actual residential growth:
  • Denver grew by 115,364 people; 2020 population: 715,522
  • Colorado Springs grew by 62,534 people; 2020 population: 478,961
  • Aurora grew by 61,183 people; 2020 population: 386,261
  • Fort Collins grew by 25,824 people; 2020 population: 169,810
  • Castle Rock grew by 24,927 people; 2020 population: 73,158
  • Thornton grew by 23,095 people; 2020 population: 141,867
  • Broomfield grew by 18,223 people; 2020 population: 74,112
  • Arvada grew by 17,969 people; 2020 population: 124,402
  • Commerce City grew by 16,505 residents; 2020 population: 62,418
  • Greeley grew by 15,906 residents; 2020 population: 108,795

   Colorado grew by 744,518 residents and ranked sixth in the nation for percentage of growth (14.8%).
   
   An article in the Burlington Record Aug. 18 cited the following statistics from the U.S. 2020 census. (https://www.burlington-record.com/2021/08/15/colorado-census-data-population-growth)
   
   The Greeley metro area was the fourth-fastest growing in the nation; the fastest was The Villages in Florida.
   
   The article also addresses housing: Almost all housing units along the Front Range are occupied, the census data shows. In Denver, 92% of the city’s 344,980 housing units are occupied, and that percentage goes up in neighboring counties — Douglas and Jefferson counties’ housing is 96% occupied, Boulder’s is at 94% and Weld County’s is 95% full.
   
   Across the state, Colorado’s housing sits at about 91% occupied with a total 2.5 million housing units available.”
   
   Diversity of the population:
   Colorado ranks in the middle among states — 65.1% of the population identify as white alone — the 27th highest proportion in the country. (There are only three states, plus Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, where the plurality racial group is non-white.) According to the article, the state’s white majority is shrinking as is the nation’s white population: A decade ago, Colorado’s white population was reported at 70%. Since 2010, America’s white population decreased by 8.6% overall.
