In 2022, Utah’s Personal Quality of Life Index stands at 76 out of a possible 100 points, lower than the first year of the Index in 2018, when the score stood at 82. The decrease from 2018 to 2022 was significant; Utahns’ sentiments about their personal quality of life have indeed declined.
Why the decrease? Because all factors declined during the period. Health, spiritual peace and happiness declined the most. Financial security – even in the face of historically high inflation – declined the least. This may be due to rising wages and historically low unemployment rates. Learn more in our newest video.
