Census: ‘Married with kids’ could be Utah motto

Two types of U.S. counties tend to have large numbers of married-couple families with children under age 18, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. One is wealthy suburbs. The other: counties in Utah.

In fact, new census estimates released last week show that among the 3,200-plus counties in the nation, only 24 have more than a third of their households consisting of married-couple families with young children. Eight of those 24 are in Utah. That means about a quarter of the state’s 29 counties fall in that category — enough to make an argument for changing the state motto from “industry” to “married with children.” Salt Lake Tribune
