Utah Employment Analysis

( Data Date : July 2019 )

Utah Employment Data

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.
