Utah Wellbeing Project

This project gathers personal and community wellbeing perspectives across Utah cities to inform city leaders and their general planning process.

Wellbeing has been the focus of human inquiry since the time of Aristotle in Ancient Greece. In this project, we survey Utahns about their perceived wellbeing and compare these findings to local and county indicators across the state of Utah. This information provides city leaders with helpful information for their planning processes.

Over 2,100 surveys were collected in Summer 2019 using iPads and a team of students across 16 Utah cities in 9 counties. In Winter 2020, we partnered with 18 cities across Utah to do online surveys and we received input from nearly 4,500 people.

We are collaborating with the Utah League of Cities and Towns on this project. For more information about the project or if would like your city to be included in upcoming survey efforts in summer and fall 2020, please contact: Dr. Courtney Flint - courtney.flint@usu.edu or (435) 797-8635.
