In 2018, Utah had one of the highest percentages of job growth in the United States at 3.7 percent.
The only other states to see that kind of growth were Texas, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho and Washington — and Utah still topped all of them.
Five percent of that growth came from Utah County alone, which is why professional economist Natalie Gochnour said Utah County is driving the state’s economy.
