Grand junction has been ranked one of the strongest economies in the country. The average annual growth rate in Grand Junction between 1994 and 2004 was 7.7%, which places Grand Junction 9th in the country. This growth rate percentage is determined by a diverse industry that allows a city to weather periods of decline
and this means great things for Grand Junction. The unemployment rate is the lowest that it has been and that is an indicator of a strong economy.

health care and trade sectors will help to keep Grand Junction's economy strong.
