The Utah Foundation's newest video examines Utahns' top 12 priorities and how the top priorities have changed over time. The video draws on the Utah Priorities Project, which contains a wide array of reports, briefs and other products.
Every four years, Utah Foundation conducts a series of surveys to discover which topics are most important to Utah voters. Surveying priorities in 2020 proved to be a unique challenge. The first series of surveys finished in March. Days later, the coronavirus pandemic shut down state economies and the next few months saw widespread protests against racism and for police reform. Due to the reshuffling of Utah voters’ priorities, Utah Foundation conducted another round of surveys to see how priorities changed from late winter to early summer. This video provides a brief summary of their findings.
