Gallop: Utah Will Be Best Place To Live In Five Years

Utah often rants at or near the top of "best lifestyle" surveys. Now Gallop, the famous polling company, is out with a new study predicting what conditions will be like in five years. The study concludes that Utah will be the best place in the U.S. to live.

We knew that, of course. Yes, Utah is more than skiing, national parks and incredible scenery. Below we g excerpts from the Gallop report. See the full report.

Utah easily leads the nation in terms of its performance across 13 forward-looking metrics that might determine which states will be the best places to live in the future. Minnesota, Colorado, Nebraska, and North Dakota round out the top five.

Utah does best in part because it is among the top two best-performing states for low smoking habits, ease of finding clean and safe water, having supervisors who treat workers like a partner rather than a boss, learning something new or interesting on any given day, and perceptions that your city or area are "getting better" rather than "getting worse."

These are five of 13 metrics encompassing economic, workplace, community, and personal choices...

The remaining eight metrics include evaluations of one's life five years from now, economic confidence, job creation, standard of living momentum, obesity, ease of finding a safe place to exercise, visits to the dentist, and the percentage of workers employed full time for an employer.

Come to play. Come to live. Come enjoy all Utah has to offer.
