2014 City Population Estimates are now available

The U.S. Census Bureau just released its 2014 population estimates by city. You can use the following visualization to download population counts for each county.

  • Ephraim took top honors as not only the fastest growing city in central Utah, but for adding the largest number of residents (2010-2014).
  • Seven of the ten fastest growing central Utah cities are located in Sanpete County (2010-2014); the remaining three fast-growing cities/towns are situated in Millard County. The same pattern holds true for numeric growth.
  • Richfield maintained the largest population total in central Utah during 2014, followed in order by Ephraim, Delta, Manti, Mount Pleasant and Gunnison.
  • Population estimates indicate that all incorporated cities/towns in Wayne and Piute counties lost residents between 2010 and 2014.
  • In contrast, all cities and townships in Sanpete County showed expanding populations over the past four years.
  • In Millard and Sevier counties, some cities added population while others lost population.
