St. George and Heber, Utah are growing faster than any other large or small city in the nation, according to the annual report just issued by the US Census Bureau. In 2017, St. George was the fastest growing metropolitan area in the country, and Heber City was the fastest growing micropolitan area in the country. Wasatch County where Heber City is located was the 3rd fastest growing county in the country!
Utah is growing almost equally from migration and natural growth, which is the difference between people moving to Utah, and people being born in the state. This is bringing more a diversity to Utah and adding to the economy and culture. The Census Bureau crunches birth, death and tax numbers from around the country to compile a snapshot of population in every county, metropolitan area and micropolitan area in the U.S. from year to year.
