Mormon population in Utah shrinks
• SALT LAKE CITY — The Mormon population of Utah continues to get smaller.
An Associated Press analysis of Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints membership records used by state planning officials to develop population estimates shows that Mormons now make up 60.4 percent of the state’s population. That’s down from 60.7 percent last year.
The percentage has declined every year for nearly two decades.
