Population Projections

Since 2015, the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute has been responsible for producing long-term demographic and economic planning projections for the State of Utah and all 29 counties. Currently, there are three 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. Our next scheduled baseline release is late 2021.
