Money Profile of Folks in 16 Colorado Cities: Are You Above or Below Average?

Our recent post about the Colorado cities that spend the most and the least on the holidays drew from information compiled by WalletHub — and seasonal budget information only scrapes the surface of its data.

When we contacted the folks at the site, they provided us with lots of unpublished facts and figures. The results add up to average consumer profiles of residents living in Denver and fifteen other Colorado cities.

Details include averages for each community when it comes to monthly income, monthly expenses, the amount kept in savings, the median age of residents and more.

The digits offer up an economic portrait of signature places in Colorado even as they reveal how we measure up with our neighbors from a dollars-and-cents standpoint.

Below, count down the photo-illustrated list. The cities with the lowest monthly income are at the top, leading to the highest at the bottom.
