3 Utah Areas Top Nation In Population Growth

The U.S. Census Bureau has released a report on the fastest-growing regions across the country, citing three Utah areas. The Salt Lake Tribune reported that Wasatch County was listed as the third fastest-growing county in the past decade with 45% growth, while St. George and Provo-Orem were on the top 10 list of fastest-growing metro areas. The Census Bureau released the report Thursday after estimating the final population count between 2010 and 2019. Some experts have raised concerns that complications from the coronavirus pandemic may put a halt to state growth.
