Northern Colorado is a great place to live, work and go to school. As a result, several cities and towns in the area have been named among the fastest-growing in the country.

There's a method of tracking these kinds of things and WalletHub's findings were based on several variables. They examined 17 different metrics which were then broken down into two main categories. 'Sociodemographics' and 'Jobs & Economy' were determined using a wide range of information available. You can find more information here while we keep trying to pronounce sociodemographics properly.
