Utah: Guide to State Statistics: Utah State Statistics

Explore the Data Planet repository for statistics on Utah by broad subject categories.


The state of Utah is named after the Utes, an American Indian tribe. Utah presents an unusually varied landscape with three distinct geological regions: the Rocky Mountains, the Great Basin, and the Colorado Plateau. It ranges in elevation from 2,350 feet above sea level in the southwest corner of the state to 13,528 feet on Kings Peak in the Uinta Mountains. In 1896 Utah was the 45th state to enter the United States. Today it ranks among the fastest growing states in the country. The state bird is the California Seagull.

This information was drawn from the website, where you will find more detail on Utah history and culture.
