4. Detailed Crime Statistics for Utah

The United States experienced significant declines in its crime rates beginning in the 1990s, while Utah’s crime rate did not begin to drop until the end of the 1990s. Various theories exist as to why this crime decline occurred, including an increase in the number of police officers, an increase in the prison population, and a decrease in the number of males aged 15-25, a demographic group responsible for a large portion of total crimes; for example, in 2006, Utah males aged 15-24 were 8.9% of the population yet were 35% of the offenders involved in index crimes. While researchers have been unable to prove exactly why this decline occurred, Utah’s per capita expenditures for police protection do appear to have some correlation with the decrease in Utah’s crime rate.

8. Weather in Utah:

Utah's temperatures are extreme, with cold temperatures in winter due to its elevation, and very hot summers statewide (with the exception of mountain areas and high mountain valleys). Utah is usually protected from major blasts of cold air by mountains lying north and east of the state, although major Arctic blasts can occasionally reach the state. Average January high temperatures range from around 30 °F (-1 °C) in some northern valleys to almost 55 °F (13 °C) in St. George. Temperatures dropping below 0 °F (-18 °C) should be expected on occasion in most areas of the state most years, although some areas see it often (for example, the town of Randolph averages about 50 days per year with temperatures dropping that low). In July, average highs range from about 85 °F (29 °C) to 100 °F (38 °C). However, the low humidity and high elevation typically leads to large temperature variations, leading to cool nights most summer days. The record high temperature in Utah was 118 °F (47 °C), recorded south of St. George on July 4, 2007, and the record low was -69 °F (-56 °C), recorded at Peter's Sink in the Bear River Mountains of northern Utah on February 1, 1985.
