One of every four residents in Utah’s San Juan County lives in poverty

Utah’s San Juan County — dominated by the Navajo reservation — languishes with one of every four residents (25.9 percent) living in poverty. That is 22nd worst among counties in the West. At the other end of the spectrum, poverty is rare in Utah’s Morgan County. Just one of every 25 residents there is impoverished — the 11th lowest rate among all the nation’s counties, and third lowest in the West.
