Strong and getting stronger.
That describes technology’s impact on the Utah economy, based on figures and analysis in a recent report compiled by the University of Utah’s Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute.
The state-funded report indicates that in 2018, tech’s total economic effect accounted for more than 310,500 jobs at companies that paid $20.4 billion in earnings and generated $29.7 billion in GDP.
“Utah’s tech economy features a fascinating past, impressive present and promising future,” the report states.
