Highlights

Cover of the Local Market Assessment: Colorado/Kentucky/Alabama 2010 report
  • Alabama: By 2009, foreign investment in Alabama had exceeded $17 billion. Companies from over 20 countries now employ roughly 5% of the state’s workforce. International companies also bring in foreign executives looking to buy real estate near their employers’ facilities.
  • Colorado: The U.S. Census Bureau reports that the fastest-growing ethnic groups in Colorado are the Hispanic and Asian communities, which in Denver grew by 39 and 31 percent, respectively, from 2000 to 2008, mostly through immigration. In contrast, the non-Hispanic white population grew only 9% during the same period.
  • Kentucky: Kentucky has a strong manufacturing base, much of it owned by foreign corporations. When foreign executives are transferred to the U.S. to run those facilities, they need homes.
