Passport has added to its Cities module, which included analysis for over 1,150 cities worldwide, four Utah cities! This allows you to dive into historical data on GDP, employment, and other areas by city!



To access this data, go to our library guides page and access the market research database: Passport. From here you can access the “Cities” tab under the consumer & industries tab to find anything and everything about the city of interest. For example, you can look at Salt Lake Cities annual consumer data to see annual disposable income for 2013 was $40,637 USD.
