At The Colorado Health Foundation, we believe in listening first, and that’s why each year we listen to Coloradans from across the state through our annual poll.
I just got the data back from this year’s poll. While I’m still digging in to make sense of it all, a few headlines are leaping off the page:
- Coloradans are feeling squeezed by the cost of housing, food, gas and other necessities, leading to increased financial insecurity.
- Worries about COVID-19 are on the decline, but mental health challenges remain for an overwhelming majority.
- There is a clear need for the government to act, but not all Coloradans share the same priorities.
There’s much more to explore in the data, and I’m looking forward to sharing it.
This year, we’re releasing the findings from Pulse in three phases, and we’re providing a variety of options to engage with the topics that interest you most. We hope that by taking a phased approach to releasing the findings, we will be able to tell a more comprehensive story about what the data mean.
- Pulse Briefing #1, Coloradans on Cost of Living and Housing: Tues., May 24, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
- Pulse Briefing #2, Coloradans on Health and Well-being: Wed., June 8, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
- Pulse Briefing #3, Deep Dive on Critical Themes from the Poll: Wed., June 22, 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
We will also be hosting a Spanish-only webinar, Deep Dive on Critical Themes from the Poll (en español) on Thurs., June 23, 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., that will share everything we learned from this year’s poll. Spanish-speakers can register for that briefing here.
Each briefing will share detailed data about the challenges that Coloradans are facing, the impact of those challenges, and the types of solutions that people want to see prioritized by lawmakers.
