Elizabeth Garner is the Colorado State Demographer and has directed the State Demography Office in the Department of Local Affairs since 2004.  She travels the state talking with Coloradans about social and economic conditions that are brought about by population shifts.  The State Demography Office applies an understanding of demographic trends to changes in a range of areas including the state’s economy, workforce, education, housing, migration, and rural populations. Elizabeth has over 30 years of experience analyzing population and economic trends in Colorado. Her current research agenda involves examining Census 2020 results, demographic impacts from COVID-19, housing supply and demand, and aging. She is an economist and received her B.A. in Business at the University of San Diego and her masters in Agricultural and Resource Economics at Colorado State University.

The State Demography Office is the primary state agency for population and demographic information. Its data is used by state agencies to forecast demand for facilities and services. This data is also used by local governments and non-profit organizations in the state to anticipate growth or decline and to plan and develop programs and community resources. The office’s location in the Department of Local Affairs insures that its data and information is developed in ways that account for local input and needs. The office makes the data publicly available on their website, answers requests for economic and demographic data and provides training workshops on accessing and using the data.
