Young, Creative, Educated

Starting at the state level, Colorado has one of the nation’s most educated workforces, ranking second among the 50 states for percentage of residents with a bachelor’s degree or higher. Narrowing that focus down, more than 34 percent of Westminster residents have bachelor’s degrees – higher than the national average — and about 12 percent hold master’s, professional or doctoral degrees.

And let’s not forget the Metro Denver market that Westminster is located in. With one of the fastest growing millennial populations in the country, the Metro Denver area enjoys a steady influx of young, creative and educated individuals. Westminster benefits from the sizable labor market in the Denver metropolitan area, and the exceptional intellectual capital available in nearby Boulder.
