Utah is a unique state with a unique culture and rich history. Utah has nearly 3 million residence, 80% of which live along the Wasatch Front, centered on the Salt Lake City valley. Nearly 60% of people living in Utah are members of the LDS Church (Mormons), which greatly influences Utah culture and life. Utah is a very business friendly, conservative state, with policies based on conservative values. It is also is very family oriented.

While most of Utah is desert, the state is one of the top winter tourist destinations for amateur and professional skiiers and snowboarders. In fact, Utah has become world-renowned for its skiing. The dry, powdery snow produced in the mountains of the Wasatch Range is considered by many to be some of the best skiing in the world. If you’ve every seen a Utah license plate you may have noticed the “Greatest Snow on Earth” phrase that many of them carry. Utah was also the location of the 2001 Winter Games and Olympics. Utah is also home to several national parks, including Uinta National Forest and Zion National Park, where you’ll find some of the most spectacular rock formations in the world.

Given it’s relatively small size and population you might imagine Utah to have a fairly small economy. As of 2010 the gross state product of Utah was about $115 billion, not bad for a small state. During the last U.S. recession, Utah was one of the few states, next to Texas that actually experienced economic and job growth. In 2010, Utah was ranked #1 in the nation for on Forbes’ list of “Best States for Business”. Utah’s business business friendly environment and conservative policies have positioned Utah as a great place to start a business or a career.

Utah is also a good place to practice psychology. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the mean annual wage for psychologists working in Utah is between about $55,000 and $77,000 a year – on par with the national average. However, the cost of living in Utah is slightly lower than the national average. This means your dollar goes a lot farther.
