Economic Impact

We worked with expert economists to see the impact to our economy if Coloradans earned the levels of education and training needed for Colorado’s jobs.

REMI Model

Using the REMI model, a dynamic economic modeling program, our coalition found that boosting Coloradans’ educational attainment would yield astounding returns for Colorado families, employers, and the state at large. What’s more, these figures would increase exponentially over time.

If Colorado Students obtained the levels of education needed to compete in today's economy, over the span of 10 years:

Colorado would
gain 57,600 additional graduates
with post-secondary education levels needed for Colorado's jobs
These graduates would
earn an additional $8.5 billion
This additional income means
more money flowing into the economy...
$1 billion
in new revenue and public savings
$472 million increase
in auto spending
$1.4 billion increase
in home spending
Leading to
greater economic outcomes
for Colorado
14,600 new jobs
created
Over $12 billion
in increased GDP growth
