Colorado Employment Profile

Colorado may be well known these days as the first state to legalize marijuana, as well as for being home to the many of the nation’s best known ski resorts. But its economy is also heavily dependent on the financial and aerospace industries.

Based on 2013 statistics, the government sector employs the greatest percentage of workers in the state, followed by retail trade, health care and social assistance; professional and technical services; and accommodation and food services, respectively.

The largest employers in the state include the State of Colorado, the Federal Government (not including the U.S. Postal Service), Wal-Mart, the Kroger Company, the University of Colorado System, Denver Public Schools, Centura Health, HCA HealthOne LLC, Jefferson County Public Schools, and University of Colorado Health. (Source: Merritt Research Services, LLC)
