Utah communities are changing rapidly. Keeping a finger on the pulse of residents' wellbeing and attitudes about community issues helps to promote sound planning and decision-making to support overall quality of life in Utah's cities and towns.
The Utah Wellbeing Survey tracks local perspectives on wellbeing around the state from very rural places to larger and rapidly growing cities. Partnerships with Utah cities make it possible to conduct annual online surveys. Over 14,000 surveys from Utahns were collected 2019-2021 and over 11,000 surveys were collected in 2022 and 2023 across 35 cities. The next survey effort will be in 2024. If you are interested in having your city participate, please contact us.
Within this website you will find detailed reports from past surveys and resources for local leaders to consider as they seek to improve their residents' wellbeing.
