HB 19-1184 requires Legislative Council Staff to prepare demographic analyses for up to 20 bills each year starting with the 2020 legislative session. Demographic notes outline the potential impact of a bill on disparities—including economic, employment, health, education, or public safety outcomes—for various populations in the state. Populations may be identified by their differences in race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, geography, socioeconomic status, or other relevant characteristics for which data are available.
