There are over 143,000 millionaire households in the state of Colorado, according to the Wall Street Journal.

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.
