Daggett County vs. Utah
Comparative Trends Analysis:
Population Growth and Change, 1969-2017
Introduction
Daggett County:
2017 Population = 1,029
2017 Percent of State = 0.0%
Utah:
2017 Population = 3,101,833
2017 Percent of State = 1.0%
Attracting and retaining people to live, work, raise a family, and retire underlies the economic vitality of any region. Population growth is both a cause--and a consequence--of economic growth. Patterns of population growth and change reflect differences among regions to attract and retain people both as producers and consumers in their economy.
The following graphs offer a broad overview of trends in the pattern of population growth and change of Daggett County with comparisons to Utah and the nation at large. This analysis features alternative approaches toward discussing, diagnosing and comparing Daggett County vs. Utah's population growth over 1969-2017. The data used are those compiled by the Regional Income and Product Divisions of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. Department of Commerce.

Figure 1.
Figure 1 traces Daggett County's annual population for the period 1969-2017 to illustrate population patterns over time. During this 49-year period, Daggett County's population rose from 600 in 1969 to 1,029 in 2017, for a net gain of 429, or 71.5%.
NOTE: The county and state population totals reported by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) are from the Bureau of Census midyear (July 1) estimates. These estimates may differ from those prepared independently in some states by various agencies and/or universities.

Figure 2 tracks Utah's annual population for the period 1969-2017 to illustrate population patterns over time. During this 49-year period, Utah's population rose from 1,047,000 in 1969 to 3,101,833 in 2017, for a net gain of 2,054,833, or 196.3%.

Figure 3.
Figure 3 portrays Daggett County's population growth in a broader context by offering direct comparisons across time with Utah, the United States. The growth indices shown here express each region's population in 1969 as a base figure of 100, and the populations in later years as a percentage of the 1969 base figure. This method allows for more direct comparison of differences in population growth between regions that may differ vastly in size.
Daggett County's overall population growth was 71.5% over 1969-2017 trailed Utah's increase of 196.3%, and outpaced the United States' increase of 61.8%.

Figure 4.
Another interesting and insightful way of comparing the population growth of Daggett County is to compare its individual percentage contributions to Utah's statewide population over time, as shown in Figure 4. A rising share means a region's population grew faster, or declined less, than Utah's population, while a declining share shows it grew more slowly.
In 1969, Daggett County's population comprised 0.06% of Utah's population, while in 2017 it equated to 0.03% thereby yielding a -0.02% share-shift.

Figure 5.
Figure 5 shows the short-run pattern of Daggett County's population growth by tracking the year-to-year percent change over 1970-2017. The average annual percent change for the entire 48-year period is also traced on this chart to provide a benchmark for gauging periods of relative high--and relative low--growth against the backdrop of the long-term average.
On average, Daggett County's population grew at an annual rate of 1.23% over 1970-2017. The county recorded its highest growth in 1973 (13.04%) and posted its lowest growth in 1978 (-7.49%). In 2017, Daggett County's population declined by -4.81%

Figure 6.
Over the past four decades some counties have experienced extreme swings in growth, and often such swings have tended to coincide with the decades themselves. Figure 6 again shows the annual percent change in Daggett County's population since 1970, but this time they are displayed with average growth rates for the decade of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010-2017.
During the 1970s, Daggett County's annual population growth rate averaged 2.59%. It averaged -0.81% throughout the 1980s, 2.40% throughout the 1990s, 1.72% throughout the 2000s, and 0.00% thus far this decade (2010 to 2017).

Figure 7.
Figure 7 compares the decade average growth rates for Daggett County noted in the previous graph with the corresponding decade averages for Utah and the nation. As the chart reveals, Daggett County's average annual population growth trailed Utah's average during the 1970s (2.59% vs. 3.07%), recorded under Utah's average throughout the 1980s (-0.81% vs. 1.88%), fell below Utah's average during the 1990s (2.40% vs. 2.59%), trailed Utah's average throughout the 2000s (1.72% vs. 2.14%), and amounted to less than Utah's average over the 8 year period of the last decade, 2010-2017 (0.00% vs. 1.64%).
Finally, relative to nationwide population growth trends, Daggett County surpassed the nation over the 1970s (2.59% vs. 1.10%), recorded underneath the nation throughout the 1980s (-0.81% vs. 0.95%), exceeded the nation over the 1990s (2.40% vs. 1.23%), outpaced the nation during the 2000s (1.72% vs. 0.95%), and fell under the nation over 2010-2017 (0.00% vs. 0.75%).
