General Description

 

Utah is a western state of the United States. It was the 45th state admitted to the Union, on January 4, 1896. Approximately eighty percent of Utah's 2,736,424 people live along the Wasatch Front, centering around Salt Lake City. In contrast, vast expanses of the state are nearly uninhabited, making the population the sixth most urbanized in the U.S. The name "Utah" is derived from the Ute Indian language, meaning "people of the mountains."
