Not to mention, our state is also home to 12 billionaires - nine of who just made Forbes' "Richest People In The World" list for 2022.

Finding The Richest Places In Colorado

To complete this year's rankings list of the richest places in Colorado, HomeSnacks chose to look beyond individual personal income; rather, the following set of criteria (made up of data from the 2016-2020 American Community Survey) was used to determine each place's position on this rankings list:

  • Poverty Level
  • Median Household Income
  • Unemployment Rate

After collecting data from 80 towns and cities in Colorado with a population of more than 5,000 people, each place was ranked from 1 to 80 for each of the criteria, with 1 being the richest.

The rankings were then all averaged out and given a “Rich Score” - where the place with the lowest overall Rich score earned a spot at the top of the rankings list; the lower the Rich Score, the higher on the list a town/city was ranked.

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
