Disregard the following note for all metros outside Colorado:  For Denver, Greeley and Boulder, CO metros only: while indicators in diversitydata.org generally reflect metropolitan area definitions as of June, 2003; 2000 population counts for the Denver, Greeley, and Boulder, CO metropolitan areas reflect 1999 definitions when the municipality of Broomfield, CO was divided into these three metro areas. In 2001, Broomfield became its own county and part of the Denver, CO metro area, where it is included in 2010 counts.
