Population Projections

The Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute produces population projections for the State of Utah and all 29 counties. Currently, there are 3 products in this body of work:

  • Long-term (50 year) projections of population, households, and economic indicators
  • Short-term (10 year) projections of population and households
  • Projections of the population by age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin, consistent with the long-term totals

The long and short-term projections are updated every four years on an alternating schedule.

A note regarding the impacts of the proposed 120-delay in 2020 Census data product to the 2021 State and County Population Projections publication schedule.
