In today’s economy, unemployment is higher for teenagers and young adults than for American workers as a whole. However, the Denver metro area turns out to be better than most cities as a place for young people to find a job. This trend is more so explained in the Denver Business Journal.
In 2009, at the peak of the recession, G. Scott Thomas for The Business Journals reviewed data on unemployment among workers aged 16 to 34 from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. He found that out of 385 cities and towns in the United States, the Denver/Aurora/Broomfield metro area’s unemployment rate for the ages of 16-34 ranked 113th lowest, at 11.88 percent. Out of the nation’s 65 largest metro areas, each containing a population of over 800,000, metro Denver ranked 17th lowest in the U.S. for young adults.
With the nationwide average jobless rate for young adults being 13.9 percent, you can tell that the city and surrounding areas of Denver are showing great promise. Jobs have been on the rise here, and improving economic conditions within the city ultimately make it an easier place to live and work.
