Some of the early estimates are in in the 2010 Census, and they are interesting for our area and for the State of Utah in general. According to an article in the Salt Lake Tribune, written by Jeremiah Stettler, Cedar City is the 6th fastest growing Micropolitan area in the United States. St. George, although not officially in the area which we work, but is never the less nearby is the Nations 2nd fastest growing Metropolitan Area.
These are rankings Nationwide, and are calculated by using the population growth from the 2000 Census and again in this years Census. Most of the entire State enjoyed double digit growth in that 10 year span. This is great information for our industry! We have lived here in Cedar City Since 1999 and have witnessed this growth. Cedar City's population is up 34% from the 2000 Census. Just some interesting facts to share with you!
