Born Into Poverty: 1,400 Each Year

Data source: CDPHE vital statistics, 2007 to 2010.
By Jordan Wirfs-Brock, The Piton Foundation

In East Colfax and Original Aurora, six out of 10 babies are born to families making less than $15,000. This is the highest rate of newborn poverty in the Children's Corridor. In some tracts in Original Aurora, the rate is close to 70%.

East Colfax and Original Aurora also has more births than any Corridor hub. From 2007 to 2010, almost a third of Corridor births were in East Colfax and Original Aurora.
