At the 2012 WFRC Consortium, we were presented with many interesting fact about Utah's demographic future. Here is the slide show with charts and graphs that were were shown:

Quite fascinating statistics. The presenters also took a live poll using a handheld voting device we were all given. Here are the results of their questions and the answers:
Consortium Polling Results
The question results that made me laugh had to do with where people were from in the audience. The overwhelming majority of us answered "Government". Ha! So, with that being said, I have to suggest that the market related answers given are biased and another poll should be given to developers and consumers alike. After all, they tend to decide what kind of housing they will build and pay for with their own money.
The questions that remain to be answered are how the free marketplace and urban development will dovetail together to meet the needs of Utah's surging and changing population.
