Denver, which achieved a full employment recovery in the first quarter, continued to add jobs in the second, according to a study released Wednesday.
The Mountain Monitor report, which tracks the economic recovery in Denver and other cities in the Intermountain West, is done by the Brookings Institute and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. A PDF of the report can be downloaded here.
The Mountain Monitor tracks quarterly indicators of economic recession and recovery in the six-state mountain region’s 10 major metropolitan areas that fall within the 100 most populous nationally. The six states are Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah. In Colorado, the report includes data on the Denver-Aurora area and on Colorado Springs.
