Utah Employment Profile

Located in the Mountain-Plains region of the U.S., the Beehive State continuously ranks in the top five states for low unemployment and high job growth. Contributing factors include population growth and an emerging tech sector. Having traditionally relied upon livestock and mining, Utah is now a center for aerospace research, and missiles, spacecraft and computer production. Tourism has increased due to many ski resorts, national parks and monuments. Having expanded five times as fast as the national pace the past two decades, employment growth is expected to continue.

Based on 2013 statistics, the government sector employs the greatest percentage of workers in the state, followed by retail trade; health care and social assistance; manufacturing; and professional and technical services, respectively.

The largest employers in the state (as of December 2013) include Intermountain Health Care (IHC), University of Utah (includes Hospital), State of Utah, Brigham Young University, Wal-Mart Stores, Hill Air Force Base, Davis County School District, Granite School District, Utah State University, and Smith’s Food and Drug Center. (Source: Merritt Research Services, LLC)
