Mormon and Nonmormon Migration in and out of Utah

Abstract

Migration plays a key role in the maintenance of Utah's unique population composition. Our findings support the conclusion that the religious factor is a major determinant of the composition of in- and out-migrants for Utah, the core state of the Mormon culture region. Although Mormons comprise less than one percent of the sending population, they constitute up to 70 percent of Utah's inmigrants. Non-Mormons are more likely to express intentions to out-migrate than are Mormons. While previous researchers have noted the need to examine the relationship between non-economic factors and migration, very little research has been devoted to this effort. The present study demonstrates the importance of sociological factors in shaping migration patterns.
