Colorado City is a very small town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 2,221 people and just one neighborhood, Colorado City is the 123rd largest community in Colorado.
Occupations and Workforce
Colorado City is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 87.12% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Colorado City is a town of professionals, service providers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Colorado City who work in healthcare (25.46%), sales jobs (13.34%) and office and administrative support (11.35%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.94% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Setting & Lifestyle
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Colorado City has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Colorado City a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One downside of living in Colorado City, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 32.10 minutes every day commuting to work.
As is often the case in a small town, Colorado City doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
