Boulder, Colo., top city for well-being
Published: March. 15, 2011 at 9:11 PM

Comments (0)EmailPrintListen WASHINGTON, March 15 (UPI) — People living in Boulder, Colo., scored the best for well-being in 2010 among 188 U.S. metropolitan areas, the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index indicates.

Lincoln, Neb., Fort Collins, Colo., Provo, Utah, and Honolulu rounded out the Top 5 cities, while the Huntington, W.Va.,-Ashland, Ky., area had the lowest score.

Overall, states in the West scored higher and those in the South scored lower.

The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index score is an average of six sub-indexes, which individually examine life evaluation, emotional health, work environment, physical health, healthy behaviors and access to basic necessities.

Among large cities, people in Washington and Austin, Texas, scored highest on the well-being index, while Louisville, Ky., scored the lowest, the survey says.

The telephone interviews of 352,840 adults was conducted as part of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index survey Jan. 2-Dec. 29, 2010.

One of the reasons Boulder is tops in the nation in well-being is because of its plentiful opportunities for its residents to “learn something new or interesting” via book stores, museums, art exhibits and non-traditional learning environments, such as topical community seminars at local colleges.

The margins of error for the Metropolitan Statistical Areas vary according to size, ranging from less than 1 percentage point for the largest cities and 6.5 percentage points for the smallest cities.

Boulder County Grows-From the desk of Dunbar Hardy

March 1, 2011 in Uncategorized

When looking at successful real estate transactions, it is important to remember the age-old Supply vs. Demand economics mantra. A factor that directly affects Demand is an increase in population, and that is why the recently announced 2010 Census results caught my attention.

The most recent census shows that overall the population of Colorado increased 16.9% (to 5, 029,196), while the City of Boulder specifically increased nominally 2.9% (to 97,385 people) over the last 10 years (from 2000 – 2010). Other communities of Boulder County that had significant growth are Longmont +21.3% and Superior +38.5%, while Erie (which straddles Boulder & Weld Counties) increased by 94% and Broomfield (which straddles Boulder & Broomfield Counties) increased by 46%.
Boulder County Cities/Towns:
Boulder: 97,385, up 2.9 percent.
