The following is a very brief excerpt from an article in the Deseret News titled "St. George metro area growth ranks 2nd in U.S." by Deborah Bulkeley and Nancy Perkins Published: Thursday, March 27, 2008 12:29 a.m. MDT.
Although the article speaks mostly about Saint George (an area I don't service, but do send referrals to) it also mentions Salt Lake and some of the surrounding counties which I do cover:
"The Provo-Orem metro area, which ranks eighth nationally in growth since 2000, ranks 34th in its one-year growth of 2.6 percent. And the Ogden-Clearfield metro area ranked 26th with 2.9 percent growth.
Utah's largest metro area - Salt Lake - grew by 2 percent, reaching an estimated population of 1.1 million. And the Logan metro area grew by 2.2 percent."
Essentially, we appear to have experienced collective growth in the 2-3% range (population).
People still flock to Utah because of the environment, the jobs, the lifestyle, the mountains, and yes, even today, the affordable housing. (Compared to other Western Metropolitain areas.)
