Denver Facts

The city of Denver, not to mention the wider state of Colorado, is blooming in terms of demographics and population. Whether it be the scenic views or the legalization of recreational marijuana, Denver has seemingly become a "go to" place in terms of places to move. This quick report shall discuss the population of the town, whether the population is increasing or decreasing, the age distribution of the town and how that compares to the wider United States, the ethnic composition of the area, the educational level of the population and how it compares to the wider population of the United States and the public health problems that are prevalent in Denver. While Denver's cost of living and other factors might dissuade some from moving there, the good seems to outweigh the bad for more and more people.


As a metropolitan area, Denver has a population of about 2.9 million people and...


This is broken up over a number of counties including Adams, Arapahoe and Boulder, just to name a few. The most populous counties/areas of the metro area are Adams at not quite half a million, Jefferson at 552,000 and Denver city/county at 648,000 (MetroDenver, 2015).

The only one of those four that is more than 20.4% is the 30-44 age group. 60-74-year-old makes up 12.2% and 75+ makes up about 4.6% (MetroDenver, 2015). . As compared to the wider United States population, there are some fairly stark differences. While people under fifty years old make up a bulk of the United States population, there is most definitely a swell when looking at people from 35 to 44 years old and it is more pronounced than Denver. There is also a swell point at 10-19-year-olds. Ranging from birth to about fifty years old, there is a bit of an S-curve when peaks at 10-19 and 35-44 years old with valleys in between. When looking at Denver in particular, there is a slight spike with 30-44-year-olds but it is not a huge spike. The difference with the wider population is more pronounced with the spikes and the spikes occur twice rather than once (CensusScope, 2015).

Denver is about 70% white, five…

Human Motivation One of the most important aspects of a child's psychological growth is the development of self-awareness. According to Thompson, the developmental pathway of the self incorporates several shadings such as the child's growing complexity and ongoing transformation of actual chronicles of self (Dacey, Travers & Lisa, 2009, p.260). He stated that these different aspects of the self continue to grow as social awareness and cognitive maturity result in a
