(Reuters) – When it comes to economic growth and business strength, there may be no better U.S. state than Utah, according to a report set to be released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Monday.
The business association found that Utah, population 2.8 million, ranked third among all states in overall economic performance – a measure of how states’ economies have fared over time in terms of jobs, gross domestic product, productivity and income.
Moreover, Utah was the only state to make the top 10 lists for all five of the “policy” areas the Chamber assessed – exports, innovation and entrepreneurship, business climate, talent pipeline and infrastructure.
