Forbes has placed Colorado in the top ten states to do business. The article mentions "Colorado is the only state that is not a right-to-work state among the top 10 of Forbes Best States for Business. Credit an educated labor supply and a migrating population that is attracted to the robust economy and outdoor recreational opportunities. At 36%, Colorado adults have the second highest level of college attainment, behind Massachusetts." Data compiled by the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation (Metro Denver EDC) in its Monthly Economic Summary for January 2013, shows commercial construction activity continues to grow. The 2013 forecast for Denver by Mentro Denver EDC states "Construction will also benefit from the influx of new households as new residents will take advantage of low interest rates and seek loans for new houses. As the overall economic recovery continues at a slow, steady pace, Colorado can expect to achieve improvements in most economic indicators in 2013."
