2016 state numbers are being released, and Utah is again the fastest growing state (percentage wise) in the nation. There's now an estimated 3,051,000 people from 2,995,000 in 2015. Utah grew by 2.03% while the entire national population grew by 0.7%

Hey we actually broke the top 10 for rate of net migration (#9). That's new.

Almost broke the top 10 for numeric growth too. #11 just behind South Carolina.

I wonder whether we will snag that last House seat. It looks like me may finish the decade in the ballpark of 3.3 million.

Good to see Utah is the fastest growing State this past year, and especially good news that over 40% of the growth was from people moving into the State.

My Stake President back when I was a boy posted this really cool old pic of Val Verda with an explanation. For those of you who don't know what Val Verda is, it's the area that formed between Bountiful and North Salt Lake that was eventually annexed into Bountiful City in the 80's.

What I found so facsinating is how much it remembles places currently being filled in with sprawl in the Wasatch Metro today. There's a certain pattern to it. You have the original towns with their own freeway exit(s) and then in between you have another exit added and a more free form sprawling community that connects these old towns. When I saw this pic I immediately thought of the second freeway exit south of the old town portion of Santaquin. I have a feeling there are many forgotten gravel pits and creek indentations in our current urban footprint along the Wasatch Front Metro.


Val Verda (Bountiful) Sometime Between 1932-1947

It was built in 1947. So the picture was taken somewhere in that window. Our house is built where the first building east of 200 East is shown. It was a prison blockhouse that was used to house the prisoners who were digging the canals. I have a bronze key and a doorknob I found while tilling our back yard.

Looks the numbers add up. Utah broke its 2005 record for most homes (houses, condos, townhomes) sold in a single year in 2016.

This in addition to the huge amount of apartments we've seen rising.

Report: Utah’s 2016 Home Sales Highest on Record

Utah’s booming economy, high job growth and low interest rates led the state to a record-breaking year for home sales in 2016. Statewide, Utah Realtors sold 49,399 homes, townhomes and condominiums — the most transactions ever in a single year and more than 800 sales higher than 2015

Also mentions that inventory is at a really, really low level. Basically not enough housing is being built.

So the realtors are suggesting a condo isn't a home? Or just a lazy reporter?

City populations released today. Here's some of the largest cities in Utah and their gains. SLC added 2,300 residents, which is tremendous. But, they retroactively lowered some of the population growth from earlier in the decade, so it really only gained about 1,000 compared to the numbers we had last year.

Asians are fastest-growing racial group in increasingly diverse Utah

The growth in the number of multiracial Utahns, on the other hand, is due largely to births, she said.

Of the 61,000 Utahns who are biracial or multiracial, more than half are under the age of 18, according to the census data.

Over the past six years, the Asian population in Utah has jumped by 34 percent, according to census information. The number of multiracial Utahns grew by 31 percent.

The non-Hispanic white population showed the slowest growth of 8 percent, while the Hispanic population grew by 17 percent.

Salt Lake County is becoming less Mormon — Utah County is headed in the other direction

http://www.sltrib.com/home/5403049-1...-becoming-less

Quote:
The 3 million-strong Beehive State, as a whole, remains roughly 62.8 percent Mormon.

But Salt Lake County, home to the headquarters of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, continues to see its portion of residents on LDS membership rolls decline. As of Sept. 30, it stood at 50.07 percent. In neighboring Utah County, which includes the faith's flagship school, Brigham Young University, Mormons make up 84.7 percent of the population, an increasing share from recent years.
---
"Salt Lake County ... has become increasingly more cosmopolitan, housing has become more expensive, and the church has overall really struggled in urban areas," said Martinich, who lives in Colorado. Whereas, Utah County has bigger homes that often are cheaper, attracting younger Mormon families who also may want to live near others from the same religion.

For Mormons deciding where to live, Martinich suggests that Salt Lake County "is just culturally less attractive, economically less attractive, socially less attractive."
---
When combined with census estimates, the new data show that Utah was 62.8 percent Mormon in 2016, the same percentage it was in 2009. But during those years, Salt Lake County dipped from 51.5 percent LDS in 2009 to 50.07 percent last year. If the trend holds, Salt Lake County soon may join the ranks of Utah's minority Mormon counties. That group includes Carbon (49.9 percent), San Juan (35.5 percent), Summit (29.4 percent) and Grand (26.5 percent).

Salt Lake County has a population of 1.12 million people, and 561,433 were on the LDS rolls in 2016. In most years, the county added at least a few thousand Mormons as it continues to grow, but not in 2016. The county saw a total population spurt of 16,732 people but a decrease of 318 in the actual number of Mormons.
---
In contrast, Utah County rose from 83.6 percent LDS in 2009 to 84.7 percent in 2016. It has a total population of 592,299, slightly more than half Salt Lake County's size, of which 501,725 are Mormons. At this pace, it is possible that Utah County, though much smaller overall, would have more Mormons numerically than Salt Lake County within the next 10 years.
---
"Salt Lake County and Utah County are so different but are becoming one big metro area," said Morgan Lyon Cotti, a political scientist at the U. Part of the religious divide is driven by housing costs, but she suggests some of it also might come from workers more willing to commute, especially those who have relocated from more crowded states like California.
