Colorado: Guide to State Statistics: Colorado State Statistics

Explore the Data Planet repository for statistics on Colorado by broad subject categories.


The rush to Colorado commenced with the discovery of gold in 1858. Soon thereafter, movement began toward a territorial and a subsequent state government, which led up to the admittance of Colorado as the 38th state of the Union in 1876. Colorado has two state songs: "Where the Columbines Grow" by A.J. Fynn, 1915, and "Rocky Mountain High," by John Denver (lyrics) and Mike Taylor (music), 1973.

This information was drawn from the Colorado State Archives website, where you will find more detail on Colorado history and culture.
