While no official state nickname is the "Mormon State", Utah is sometimes called the Mormon state because Mormons settled it and the majority of residents (60%) are practicing Mormons. While Mormons live in all states and almost all countries, about 10% of the 14.5 million Mormons worldwide live in Utah.
Yes, definately. There are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) in every state of the US. There are over 6 million Mormons in the United States. The state with the largest number of Mormons is Utah with 1.8 million Mormons. The state with the fewest number of Mormons is Rhode Island, with about 4,000 Mormons.
All states in the US are inhabited by mormons, Utah having the largest population.
Pretty much anywhere in the world
Mormons founded Salt Lake City, Utah, the capital of Utah. Actually, they founded the whole state of Utah...
Many different types of people live in the state of Utah. There is a relatively high population of Mormons in this state.
Every state! There are over six million members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the 'Mormon' church) living in the United States, and at least several thousand Mormons in each state. The western US has a higher concentration of Mormons than the east, and Utah has the highest concentration with about 60% of the state being practicing Mormons.
Utah was settled by Mormons.
I live in salt lake and would say it has the largest concentration of mormans as percentage of total population. But most mormans in the US live out of slc. Out of utah in fact. ---------------- No, definately not. While Salt Lake City is the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church), most American Mormons live outside of Utah. (There are 6,060,000 baptized Mormons in the United States, and 1,884,000 of those live in Utah.) So, less than 1/3 of American Mormons live in Utah. Most Mormons in Utah live outside of Salt Lake City. The city itself is actually quite liberal and diverse, and the homes are small and expensive compared to the rest of the state. The suburbs surrounding Salt Lake City are where the majority of Mormons in Utah live. Some of the suburbs are more than 90% Mormon. About 80,000 of the 6,060,000 American Mormons live in Salt Lake City, which is just over 1.3%.
There isn't really a such thing as a Mormon State... Most cities and towns in Utah were settled by Mormon pioneers and today about half of the population of Utah are practicing Mormons. About 10% of all Mormons live in Utah.
Yes, Mormons do consider themselves to be Christians. In the US, Utah is the state with the largest number of Mormons. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has approximately 15 million members throughout the world.
As of January 1, 2012, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) reported 144,904 baptized Mormons in the state of Colorado.
The Mormons left the state of Missouri, including the city of Independence, due to an extermination order given by state governor Lillbourn Boggs, which said that Mormons should be exterminated or driven from the state.
Most members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church) don't even live in the United States! Church headquarters has always been located in the United States and was moved from New York to Ohio to Missouri to Illinois to Utah. Headquarters has been located in Utah since 1847. The state with the highest number of Mormons is Utah. About 8% of all Mormons live in Utah, about 30% live in a state other than Utah, and about 60% live outside the U.S.
You are probably thinking of Salt Lake City, Utah. The headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) has been located in Salt Lake City since 1847. However, there is no city where most Mormons live. There are 14.5 million Mormons scattered around the globe, with about 35-40% of Mormons living in the United States and about 10% of Mormons living in the state of Utah. Only about 0.4% of Mormons live in Salt Lake City boundaries.
Of the 13,824,854 members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) worldwide, 7,785,947 live outside the United States. That is, 56% of all baptised Mormons live outside the U.S. Nations with quite a few Mormons are: Canada 179,801 Mormons (1% of Mormons are Canadian, 0.5% of Canadians are Mormon) Samoa 69,224 Mormons (0.5% of Mormons, 39% of Samoans) Tonga 55,173 Mormons (0.5% of Mormons, 53% of Tongans) Mexico 1,197,573 Mormons (8.7% of Mormons, 1% of Mexicans) Guatemala 220,296 Mormons (1.6% of Mormons, 1.6% of Guatemalans) El Salvador 105,501 Mormons (0.8% of Mormons, 2% of El Salvadorians) Hondouras 136,408 Mormons (1% of Mormons, 2% of Hondourans) Brazil 1,102,674 Mormons (8% of Mormons, 0.6% of Brazilians) Chile 561,920 Mormons (4% of Mormons, 3.3% of Chileans) Peru 480,816 Mormons (3.5% of Mormons, 1.7% of Peruvians) Philippines 631,885 Mormons (4.6% of Mormons, 0.7% of all Philippinos) UK 186,082 Mormons (1.3% of Mormons, 0.3% of all UK) Australia 126,767 Mormons (0.9% of Mormons, 0.6% of Australians) New Zealand 100,962 Mormons (0.7% of Mormons, 2.4% of all New Zealanders) To compare, the United States has 6,038,907 Mormons. That's 44% of Mormons and 2% of all Americans. But you can find Mormons in nearly every nation of the World! The "Related Link" below has a great population statistics map related to Mormon Church membership.
No state called the Mormons, I don't know how that would be possible. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) was founded in upstate New York in 1830. A short time later, enemies of the church nicknamed them "Mormons", mocking their belief in the Book of Mormon. They have since embraced the nickname but still prefer that the full name of the church be used. Since 1830, Mormon Church headquarters has moved from New York to Ohio to Missouri to Illinois and finally to Utah, but the membership has been scattered around the country and worldwide. Today, about 40% of all Mormons live in the United States, and about 10% of all Mormons live in Utah.
Most members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) live outside of the United States. About 40% of Mormons live in the US, and 60% live outside of the US scattered in nearly every nation. The Church is growing most quickly in Africa and Central and South America; membership remains steady in Asia and Europe; and is sparse but exists in the Middle East. The highest concentration of Mormons is in the western United States, and about 10% of all Mormons live in Utah.
Idaho has the second highest percentage of Mormons of any state. Utah, of course, has the highest. Utah has the largest number of Mormons, while California has the second highest number of Mormons. Idaho has the third highest number of Mormons.
The "Mormons" were never given a state or made a state. The Mormons suggested a state called Deseret, but it was denied and was never made a state. The state of Utah became a state in 1896 during the administration of Grover Cleveland. The boundaries were drawn by the federal government and the name was chosen by the government as well. The population of the state was mostly Mormon, but there was a sizeable population of other religious groups as well. So, Grover Cleveland gave statehood to Utah, not to Mormons. Most Mormons at the time lived within Utah, but they did not choose the boundaries or the name.
The Mormons had faced severe persecution and oppression from both local residents and city and state governments. An appeal for protection to the United States government was not answered, so the Mormons decided to seek religious freedom outside of the United States.
The State of Utah was formed on January 4, 1896. It would have become a state sooner but the polygamy laws of the Mormons violated the US Constitution.
Utah. Mormons do not go in for vices like smoking or drinking, so they compensate with candy.
While it is true that some Mormons are more concerned about image, you will find this with any religion. The teachings of the LDS (Mormon) church teach that you should not be concerned about image but be Christ like and live as Christ would want us to live. There are many Mormons who follow this and try to live Christ like lives and would not care about how the world sees them.
Mormons live everywhere around the USA and also around the world - so it would be stranger if there wouldn't be LDS in NY
