How do you determine which city is best for singles in Utah anyways?

To give you the places in Utah which are best for singles to find one another, we have to look at a handful of metrics. Of course, we want to measure the type of people who live in each city, and make some assumptions about what single people like.

So we researched the internet for a database that contains all that information.

How we crunched the numbers for the Beehive State

We threw a lot of criteria at this one in order to get the best, most complete results possible. Using the 2013-2017 American Community Survey Census data produced for the state of Utah, we looked at every single city in the state. We paid particular attention to:

  • Population density
  • % of population that’s male vs. female (closer to a 50-50 ratio is better)
  • % of households with kids
  • Median age
  • Number of unmarried people in each city

We then gave each city a Singles Score.

The higher the score, the better the city is for singles to find one another. We also limited our results to cities with populations over 10,000 people. For Utah, that meant a total of 54 cities.

Read on to see why Provo is the talk of the town while Draper is probably a bit on the boring side.

Review Of Orem by HomeSnacks User

I thought it was a fine town but it’s really run down and since it’s right next to a bustling college town, most of the people who live there are below a certain poverty level that most people are comfortable living around. There seems to be mostly commercial growth, which leaves the residential areas feeling random and it’s driving the prices up but for cheap and under-maintained homes and apartments.

There’s great shopping, restaurants and places for entertainment. I just definitely would never live there.
