Exactly! CO has a lower N/A population by percentage than average. The total N/A population in the US is about 2%. CO's N/A population is 1.59%.

I think there are a lot more East Coasters in CO than one may imagine. They’re just more “under the radar” than Texans and Californians which tend to stand out more. But schools like Western State, Fort Lewis, and Colorado College are in many ways much more well known on the East Coast than they even are in Colorado, and they’re stuffed with East Coast trust funders. And their families own a lot of seasonal real estate out here too.

That's certainly the same old tired stereotype that many natives live by. Just keep up that wonderfully anti-Texan and Californian sentiment, and make yourselves look petty. Makes you feel good, huh?

Truth is, east coasters do stand out, and it's usually that they aren't into the passive-aggressive stuff. They are more vocal and open. But that's an inconvenient reality to look at, so let's just sweep it under the rug.

I don't know if people are counting me among the east coasters or not. I'm not from the coast; I'm from way western Pennsylvania which doesn't have a coastline anyway. However, I never heard of any of those schools when I was in high school back in PA.

Skydog77 is right. I've known this all along, actually I've known this for a few decades. Looking at Western Colorado--

Regarding California--When Exxon pulled the plug on their massive oil shale operations, Colorado's western slope went into a recession that was every bit as nasty as the most recent one years ago. Mesa County went to 10% unemployment starting in 1983 and stayed that way for years. Grand Junction's daily paper is the Sentinel and once a week the classifieds showed the HUD listings for commercial properties as well as residential properties. By 1986 the HUD listings would basically fill up an entire page. By 1987-8 the listing would include "any reasonable offer." Reasonable to them? It didn't much matter to HUD unless you would try to bid $2000 on a three bedroom house.

Regarding Texas--In southwestern Colorado there has been a Texas presence in the Durango/Pagosa Springs/South Fork area clear back when I worked the summer of 1968 for the Forest Service as a road crew laborer and also did some school at Ft. Lewis College. Going forward to 1983, the economy certainly slowed down a bunch but didn't collapse like Mesa County did. Still, prices on residentials was really cheap as the GJ daily paper would show listings for pretty much all of western Colorado.

After living in Littleton for umpteen years and moving to western Colorado to stay around 1990, I got to know some people through a hobby antique trade show and one of them worked for the drivers license bureau. As the area was starting to fill up I asked him where everyone was coming from, he replied "California first, Texas second."

The Front Range boom in the early 1990s was very much a CA exodus. It even got the label “Californication” at that time.

LaVeta seems to be nothing but Texans and Oklahomans.

I met people here from all over the country. None made much of a deal over where they were from.

I'm originally from California. Whether you like it or not, what I said is very much true.
