Utah “Best State for Employment”

Utah is the best state in the nation for employment according to the Best States report released by U.S. News on March 10, 2017. The report used three factors in ranking each state that included annual job growth, labor force participation rate of residents age 16 or older, and a low unemployment rate. This is illustrated above with each state given a category score based on ranking, i.e. 1st = 50 pts and 50th = 1 pt. Utah earned the top rank with strength in each category; first in job growth and sixth in both labor force participation and low unemployment rate. Amongst all 50 states, only Utah and Colorado placed in the top ten in all three categories highlighting their strong economic fundamentals.
