The 2021 Annual State Demography Summit will be held virtually on Friday November 5, 2021, starting at 8:30 a.m.
This one-day conference offers attendees the opportunity to learn about the most current population and economic conditions and forecasts for the state and its regions and what is driving these changes.
Plenary sessions will cover the newest SDO’s estimates and forecast, how they are produced and discuss implications for planning, policy, business, and public services.
Initial Census 2020 data was released in August - what does it mean for Colorado, how have we changed and what will be in future data releases.
The Census Bureau is not just about population. Did you know they have a whole suite of tools to assist small businesses and economic developers? Census experts will discuss the use of Census data tools to assist small businesses in planning for future growth.
The State Demography Office staff will also demonstrate several of its tools for visualizing population change and will introduce its redesigned website.
This year’s Summit will be held virtually via Zoom. There is no registration charge for the Summit, but attendees must pre-register by following this link.
