Logan Ranks Seventh Nationally in Population Growth

One of the reasons that the Logan Real Estate market is doing as well as it is, is because the population is growing. Nationally. The Logan metro area ranked seventh in total population growth last year, and the population increased by almost 3%. The Logan Metro Area, including Franklin County Idaho, now has a population of 127,945.  Here are some details from an article by the Deseret news.

While Logan is also home to Utah State University, Tennert noted that “Logan was an area not quite as impacted by the recession as other places in Utah. Everywhere felt some impact, but Logan was doing a little better than most,” so it also may have attracted more immigration than other places by drawing people to jobs there.

Tennert said Utah also appears to have had some recent immigration from children of extended families who lost jobs out of the state and who have “come back to the state to move in with family and hunker down” until better times return.According to the new estimates, Provo-Orem had an increase of 15,797 residents last year for a new total population of 555,591. The metro area ranks 91st out of 366 in total population, up from No. 92 a year earlier.

The Logan metro area had an increase of 3,583 residents for a total population of 127,945. Logan ranked No. 296 in population among metro areas, up from No. 299.
