- Tattoos and drugs are as common as sunshine and dry air
- Very limited pool of talent. People here just don't give a crud. Young talent is fleeing for better cities, leaving behind the tattooed, drugged up menaces.
If you don't like tattoos, don't get one. One problem solved

FYI: Per the U.S. Census Bureau, Denver metro only gained 138 people from the Albuquerque metro in the 4-year period from 2012-2016, the most recent period available.

https://flowsmapper.geo.census.gov/map.html#

In that time 1,029 people moved from Denver to Albuquerque while 1,167 people moved from Albuquerque to Denver.

Denver to Albuquerque:

Denver County to Bernalillo County - 340
Denver County to Sandoval County - 1
Denver County to Valencia County - 59
Denver County to Torrance County - 9
Arapahoe County to Bernalillo County - 256
Jefferson County to Bernalillo County - 163
Jefferson County to Torrance County - 17
Adams County to Bernalillo County - 109
Douglas County to Bernalillo County - 64
Douglas County to Valencia County - 1
Broomfield County to Bernalillo County - 10

Total - 1,029

Albuquerque's economy has been growing for five years now and the metro has the most jobs it has ever had. It has over $3 billion in private investment coming from Facebook and Netflix and thousands of jobs created by their projects in Albuquerque. Our airport traffic is going up at record rates and on its way to reaching its peak numbers from before the recession.

Downtown Albuquerque is in the midst of its biggest resurgence ever with over $400 million in projects and over 3,500 jobs created since 2015. 1,350 of those jobs have been created in the last year alone. The urban neighborhoods of Albuquerque including Downtown have seen about 4,000 new residential units constructed or proposed since 2015.

The nation's first Gold-rated BRT line, the $135 million Albuquerque Rapid Transit, looks like it will finally get underway by the end of this year, now that the issues with the fleet have been fixed by going with another manufacturer. There is an RFP by the mayor for a city-owned parking lot downtown with proposals due next month that may produce a new performing arts center. Expo New Mexico is looking at building a new arena and the city's new USL soccer team is looking to build a downtown soccer stadium.

Crime has been going down in the city for over a year now.

In 2018 Albuquerque was named by Livability as the 4th-best city in the country for STEM workers with over 22,000 such positions in the city. Livability also just recently named Albuquerque as among the Top 100 best places to live in the United States.

Most likely elderly people moved to Albuquerque due to the low costs of living, that’s the fact.

I think overall one of the main problems with the state is it's deep cultural issues. We do have major disparity in highly educated vs highly uneducated individuals-the state is not pro active, and it is not business friendly. Take a look at transit, for one example. You will see the infrastructure services mostly the older parts of the city. It does not connect travelers from the airport to the railrunner stations. UNM is the largest employer in the state. The largest company is PNM resources at 1Billion revenue per year. Our neighbors, TX (Exxon) is at 226B, Colorado, Arrow electronics 24B, AZ Avnet is at 26B.
