Utah is a western state in the United States. It was the 45th state to join the United States on January 4, 1896. About 88% of the population of Utah lived in a large metropolitan area called the Wasatch Front, with Salt Lake City as its center. Meanwhile, a large portion of the state is uninhabited, making Utah the sixth most urbanized state in the United States.
The state of Utah is a hub for transportation, information technology, scientific research, mining, and tourism, especially in the ski areas near Salt Lake City, the capital of the state of Utah and host of the 2002 Winter Olympics. Utah has the sixth-highest urban population in the United States.
