The Metro Denver Counties
 The Metro Denver Counties includes the counties of Denver, Arapahoe,
 Adams, Broomfield, Douglas, and Jefferson. This region covers slightly
 less than 4% of total land area in the state, yet is home to approximately
 50% of all real estate related employment in the state and almost 50% of
 the state’s population.

 In 2005, over $9.1 billion of earnings and profits in the Denver region were
 associated with real estate related professionals. Additionally, 55.4% of the
 state’s real estate related earnings happen in the Metro Denver Counties.

 Around 41% of the earnings and profits are brought in by specialty trade
 contractors with 27% due to real estate, 10% in furniture/ electronics/
 appliance/ building materials, 13% in residential construction, and 9% in
 nonresidential construction.
The Eastern Plains Counties
 The Eastern Plains Counties are comprised of Baca, Bent, Cheyenne,
 Crowley, Elbert, Huerfano, Kiowa, Kit Carson, Las Animas, Lincoln, Logan,
 Morgan, Otero, Phillips, Prowers, Sedgwick, Washington, and Yuma
 counties. Together, these counties comprise of 32.54% of the land in
 Colorado yet only contain 3.95% of the population.

 In this large yet sparsely populated and largely agricultural region, less
 than 2% of the state’s real estate employment and incomes are generated.
 This has just under 3.56% of total assessed value in the state and due to
 the largely agricultural nature of the region, less than 3% of total property
 tax in the state is generated in this region.

 Real estate related employment is just over 6.5% of total employment in
 this region, yet these jobs generate 7.8% of total earnings and profits. Real
 estate is one of the highest paying industries in the Eastern Plains.
The Colorado Springs Counties
 The Colorado Springs Counties consist of El Paso and Teller counties
 which is a total of 2.33% area of the state. Even with the small area, the
 counties contain 12.44% of the state’s population with 9.54% of the state’s
 real estate related earnings and profits earning in the Colorado Springs

 In total, 8.32% of the total assessed value of property statewide is located
 in the Colorado Springs region. However, due to lower than average mill
 levies, the region generates only 7.48% of total property tax revenue.

 Over 1 in 10 jobs in this region are real estate related and slightly over $1
 out of every $10 in earnings and profits are real estate related. In 2005, the
 real estate related industries accounted for greater than $1.5 billion in
 direct earnings and profits in this region.
Pueblo County
 Pueblo County consists of 2.29% total area of the state and 3.20% of the
 population. However, within the region, real estate accounts for 10.57%
 and 10.8% of regional employment and incomes respectively. In this
 manner, Pueblo is slightly lower, yet relatively consistent with the overall
 averages for the state.

 Property in the Pueblo region is largely classified as residential,
 commercial or industrial. These classes of improved real estate account for
 just over 81% of total valuations in the region. Due to the relatively heavy
 concentration of industrial property in the region, Pueblo’s share of state
 property tax revenue is 1.89% and exceeds its share of assessed values at

 Pueblo County also distributes the earnings and profits with 47% coming
 from specialty trade contractors, 10% in real estate, 14% in furniture/
 electronics/ appliances/ and building materials, 13% in residential
 construction and 16% in nonresidential construction. This is the only region
 that has a larger percentage of nonresidential construction than residential.
The North Front Range Counties
 The North Front Range Counties contain Boulder, Weld, and Larimer
 Counties which accounts for 7.08% of the state and 16.66% of the
 population. Real estate related employment jobs generated just over $2.5
 billion in earnings and profits in 2005, 11.3% of the region’s income

 The North Front Range region is home to a quite diversified economy. The
 state’s two largest universities are located in this region as is nearly one
 third of all industrial property valuation. Just over $717 million in property
 tax revenue is generated by all property classes in the region. Of that,
 almost 79% comes from residential, commercial and industrial property.

 This region generates just over 17% of total state property tax revenues
 and the share of improved real estate represented by the residential,
 industrial, and commercial classes of property in the North Front Range are
 nearly identical to the share for the state overall.
The Mountain Rural Counties
 The Mountain Rural Counties consist of a few non-connecting counties and
 was crated due to the high percentage of protected public land and agriculture.
 The counties included are Alamosa, Archuleta, Chaffee, Clear Creek, Conejos,
 Costilla, Custer, Delta, Dolores, Fremont, Gilpin, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Jackson,
 La Plata, Lake, Mineral, Moffat, Montezuma, Montrose, Ouray, park, Rio
 Blanco, Rio Grande, Saguache, and San Juan.

 The Mountain Rural region claims almost 38% of the total square miles in the
 state yet only 10.38% of total valuations. From the taxable land in the region,
 just under 6.5% of total statewide property taxes are generated. For both
 values and share of property taxes, this region’s contribution has increase from
 the previous year, largely due to increases in property classes such as oil and
 gas and natural resources.

 The Mountain Rural region is second only to the mountain resort region in the
 share of total employment from real estate. In the mountain rural counties, real
 estate related employment represented 12.73% of total employment in 2005
 and generated 14.4% of total regional earnings and profits. In total, this industry
 directly contributed just under $872 million in economic activity in 2005.
The Mountain Resort Counties
 The Mountain Resort Counties contain Eagle, Pitkin, Routt, San Miguel,
 Summit, Garfield, and Grand counties. This region, while claiming 3.96% of
 the state’s population, supports 9.54% of the state’s real estate related
 employment and 9.7% of the state’s real estate related earnings and

 In 2005, just over $458 million in property tax revenue was generated in the
 mountain communities. This represents 8.64% of total property tax
 collections in the state. Of that, 70.42% was associated with residential,
 commercial, and industrial properties.

 Just over 13% of total assessed values in the state are in the mountain
 resort regions. But, due to the largely residential nature of the property
 base, only 8.64% of the state’s property tax revenue is collected in this
 region. On a per capita basis, this region has the highest property tax
 burden of $2,448 due to the large percentage of second and vacation
 homes in this region.
The Grand Junction Region
 Grand Junction Region includes only Mesa County and accounts for 3.19%
 area of the state and 2.77% of the population. Overall, the Grand Junction
 region is quite balanced with respect to its relative contribution to the
 state’s economy.

 This region contributes 2.7% and 2.07% respectively of the state’s
 employment and earnings and profits. Real estate related employment
 represents 11.8% of the employment in the Grand Junction region. This
 exceeds the state average by over half a percentage point.

 The Grand Junction region is a relatively low burden property tax region.
 However, in 2005 just over 82% of total assessed valuations and property
 tax revenues were generated from residential, commercial and industrial
 classes of property, those classes most aided by real estate professionals.
