2018 Occupational Licensee Demographic Data

Gender Data:

  • MED compiled 2018 licensee demographic data - the most recent full annual data set available and reviewed. At the time there were three occupational license types: associated key (owner), key and support. As of January 1, 2020, there are now two: owner and employee.
  • 2018 gender data: responses on over 99% of occupational licensee applicants.
  • Women held over 39% of support licenses, almost 32% of key licenses and about 22% of associated key licenses. Overall, women held a little more than 36% of all occupational licenses in Colorado.

  • 2018 Application Race/Ethnicity Options:
    • Asian
    • Black
    • Caucasian
    • Hispanic/Latino
    • Mixed Race
