Colorado grew by more than 190,000 residents from July 2014 to July 2016. The state now has 5.5 (5,540,545) million residents, up 491,901 since the 2010 census.

Colorado will be competitive for another seat, but it will depend on growth during the remaining four years of the decade. Will the torrid pace continue, or will congestion and housing prices turn migrants away?
