Analysis of Neighborhoods’ Housing Identifies Areas of Population Growth in Salt Lake County

By: Dr. Pamela S. Perlich, Ph.D.

Today we release our tract level population, household, housing unit, and group quarters estimates for Salt Lake County. These are annual estimates for 2010 through 2014 for all 212 census tracts within Utah’s most populous county. Our analysis shows that areas of rapid growth are in the southern portion of the county (Bluffdale, Herriman, and South Jordan), central valley (Midvale and Murray), and Salt Lake City.
