What is Utah Good At?

The company One Block Off The Grid recently produced a map of things that each state is “good” at. Utah did pretty well: it apparently has the highest literacy rate, the lowest number of smokers, the fastest growing job market, and the lowest median age.

By comparison, not all states excelled at good things. Illinois, for example, had the highest gang membership. Hawaii has the most expensive energy. Mississippi was the most obese.

People in Provo are generally pretty optimistic about their city, and this is just more evidence that their outlook is well-founded.
