The Pueblo Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) shows a great deal of diversity in its demographic makeup. Its communities consist of three incorporated places (the City of Pueblo, Town of Boone, and Town of Rye), two metropolitan districts (Pueblo West and Colorado City), and a variety of residentially developed areas that are generally known to longtime residents but have no legally mandated boundaries.
The population in Pueblo County fluctuated in the 1980's and early 1990's as shifts in employment occurred. But starting in the late 1990's, population in Pueblo County rebounded and in spite of the recession that took place in 2007-2009, has continued to grow. In 2015, the Pueblo County population count was 162,724 people; 68 percent, or over 111,0000 of those residents lived within the City of Pueblo. By 2045, the Pueblo County population is expected to increase to over 207,000 people.
