Utah Population Estimates

Metro and county information was released today:


Metro 2014 2015 Change Percent Change

Logan 131,334 133,857 2,523 1.9%

St George 151,876 155,602 3,726 2.5%

Provo 571,990 585,799 13,809 2.4%

Ogden 632,295 642,850 10,555 1.7%

Salt Lake 1,154,513 1,170,266 15,753 1.4%


The Logan MSA is seeing really good growth again after it stagnated earlier this decade. Provo and St George are still soaring.

This also means the CSA increased 40,117, which is about part for what's it been doing.

Logan, St George, and Provo/Orem metros are their respective counties, correct?

Ogden is Davis and Weber Counties, and Salt Lake is SL, Tooele, Summit, and Wasatch counties?

or is Wasatch part of Provo?

Isn't Wasatch still it's own "Micro-politan" area?

Salt Lake is only Salt Lake and Tooele counties. Summit County was dropped a few years ago and is now its own micropolitan area. And yes, Heber is its own micropolitan area (Wasatch County). Ogden also includes Morgan County and Box Elder County. Provo-Orem also includes Juab County

There's a map on the Wikipedia page for the SL MSA:

Ogden should really be added to SLC metro again. 1.8 million feels more correct for the SLC metro.

It is strange when you consider the fact that North Salt Lake is in a different metro area than Salt Lake City.

There must be some kind of convoluted advantage for collecting federal funds or something of that nature. The whole way of separating the Ogden/Salt Lake Metro makes no sense to me. Does anyone have the official explanation for it? Is there a percentage of people from Ogden/Layton/Clearfield that must work and travel daily to Salt Lake Valley in order to consider it as one metro?

No kidding. I live in North Salt Lake and everything we do (shopping, eating, working, etc) revolves around Salt Lake City. Absolutely nothing we do includes Ogden or Weber county.

Wat.

It's like 2 hours away with no connecting development and commutes. Is San Diego part of LA?

Oh ok I guess its been quite awhile since I last drove that route (my brother went to UNLV back in the late 80s and I guess it didn't seem that far away from Vegas and driving all the way from my old home- metro Denver seemed to play a bit into that)..

Yeah SD is too far from LA so definitely agree..

There is a method for determining MSAs and it applies to counties as a whole. Maybe South Davis County would fit the metrics for being a part of the MSA when taken alone but Davis County as a whole does not. Even so, South Davis has a population of less than 100,000 so it wouldn't make that much of a difference anyway. The way MSAs are determined isn't perfect but there needs to be an easy, uniform method of determining them across the whole country. In my opinion, any shortcoming of the MSA statistics is made up for with the CSA or PSA.

Utah County is getting close to having more people than the entire state of Wyoming.

Utah County 575,205
Wyoming 586,107

I imagine it will pass Wyoming up by 2020

A third of Davis county's workforce commutes to Salt Lake. About 45,000 daily commuters. In terms of pure numbers it is the largest inter-county commute in the state and in terms of a percentage of the workforce it is second only to Tooele into Salt Lake(31.6% vs 37.6% respectively).

I just see no reason for Davis county not to be part of the SL MSA.

While it might not make sense, obviously the Census Bureau has it's reasoning and as airhero pointed out that is why the CSA is a better measurement for true metro population.

City data has been released by the Census Bureau up to summer 2015. Here's an online Excel link for a table I've made if you want to sort around the data: https://onedrive.live.com/view.aspx?...Bmhd-NDN8-TOCU

And a snapshot of the top 26 or so largest cities:




Actually pretty positive growth for the top 10 or so cities. SLC is still growing, along with Ogden, which is great to see. It looks like that negative growth they showed for SLC last year was readjusted, and shown as a positive gain now (they make retroactive adjustments each year if necessary).

South Jordan is still going crazy. And Orem added a surprising amount. Looks like St. George will overtake Ogden before too long here. It's crazy to think they have over 80k residents now.

SLC jumped 6k in the first 5 years, could it jump 7.4k in the next 5 years to hit 200k for the first time ever?

Lehi, South Jordan, and Herriman with hyper growth as expected. But I was especially impressed to see the reinvigoration of Midvale and it's vibrant growth. An older inner valley city that has been adding a lot of multi-residential and class A office development.

With as many apartment/condo/townhouses that we have under construction or proposed, I would think so.

Utah Census Thread

Instead of creating a new thread every year for census numbers I figure we can just keep this one general thread.
