Home to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park, Utah has a 21st century, knowledge driven, innovation based economy that leads the country in many new industries. Health care, dietary supplements, lasers, defense contracting and software make up much of the job growth that the state has experienced. Recreation in the Wasatch Range took off after Utah hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics and the world witnessed how great the dry powdery slopes were. While Mormon's comprise 62% of the state, all religions are tolerated because the Mormon's remember the persecution that drove them west of the Mississippi in search of a place to practice their faith freely. Mining and petroleum still power much of the Utah economy and contribute to the rugged pioneer spirit that embodies this diverse landscape.
The State of Utah website gives people a complete guide to moving, employment, education, legal matters, business regulation, investment opportunities and more.
