The U.S. Census Bureau says Douglas County south of Denver led the nation in housing growth from 2001 to 2002 with an 8.3% increase. Paul Ruff is a resident of the county's Castle Pines North and says the area went from having nobody to having a nice amount of people.

Colorado's Broomfield County -- the newest county in the nation -- was seventh nationally with a 7% increase in housing units for the 12 months beginning July 1, 2001.

The top 20 counties nationwide all started with fewer than 100-thousand units. As a state Colorado was second only to Nevada for percentage increase in housing units from 2001 to 2002. Colorado housing grew by 2.9%.
