Here is the kind of information you can find:
- Unemployment continues to decline and has reached the level of what is considered full employment (4 to 5%). It has not yet returned to the super low levels of 2019.
- The civilian labor force is larger than it was, on average, in 2019 in both Larimer and Weld Counties.
- Larimer County has continued to have very strong growth in the average hourly earnings while Weld County has continued on a downward trajectory.
- Retail sales are 20+% above 2019 levels - this is reflective of changes in prices, volumes, as well as the mix of goods and services purchased.
