Natalie Young is a research analyst, specializing in geographic information systems, geography, and demography.
In 2020, Young and colleagues released annual population and housing unit estimates for all census tracts of Utah’s largest counties for “Salt Lake and Utah County Subcounty Estimates, 2010-2019”. This research involves intensive data development, mapping, and small area analysis, and is updated regularly. She has designed a broad range of interactive maps that highlight census or local data. Young programmed data and created all maps for “Salt Lake City Data Book 2020,” displaying neighborhood trends for 43 demographic and housing topics. She has produced or collaborated on several other community demographic publications and analyses.
Young earned her B.S. in Geography with a GIS emphasis and minor in Media Arts from Brigham Young University. She is pursuing a Master of Cartography and GIS with a GIS development emphasis online at the University of Wisconsin. Prior to joining the University of Utah, she contributed on GIS projects for two city governments and for private industry.
