With a Metro area population of approximately 483,000, the Utah County economy has been able to maintain stability due mainly to its job growth.  Recently rated Provo with the highest employment growth (5.5 percent) (5-year annualized job growth of 4.2 percent) the highest in the United States.  While the rest of the country continues to struggle, Utah County just keeps plugging along.

Major players in the job market in Utah County are; Brigham Young University, Utah Valley University and Novell.  Many other Technology firms have chosen to make Utah County their home in recent years.  It is expected that the lower cost of living in Utah County will help to make this area a popular landing place for other businesses for years to come.
