Census Bureau Issues Study of Older Workers in Colorado

The U.S. Census Bureau has issued a report--A Profile of Older Workers in Colorado (PDF)--finding that, in 2002, about 33 percent of working Coloradans were age 45 or older, an increase from 24 percent in 1994. The share of the Centennial State's workers who were age 65 or older increased slightly over the period, from about 1.9 percent to 2.7 percent. The analysis of Colorado's older work force is the result of a new program called Local Employment Dynamics (LED) that was created in a partnership between the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment and the Census Bureau.
