Salt Lake City is one of the least Mormon and most liberal areas in Utah. The percentage of practicing Mormons within Salt Lake City boundaries is probably near 20-30%, most of these tending to be college students or young professionals who tend to be more liberal in their beliefs than a typical Mormon. There are, however, a very high number of non-practicing Mormons in Salt Lake City. If you include both practicing and non-practicing Mormons, the number is probably closer to 50-60%.
The first Mormon pioneers arrived in Salt Lake City in 1847. Groups continued to travel the Mormon Trail to Salt Lake City until the railroad came through in 1869. After that, most traveled by train to get to Salt Lake City. After World War I, Mormon converts were encouraged to stay in their home cities or nations rather than travel to Salt Lake City.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) does not release membership statistics for cities, only for states. So we don't know exact the Mormon population of Salt Lake City in 2004, but it was probably around 30-40%. The city itself has quite a low Mormon population compared to the rest of the state.
