A national study has placed Cedar City among the top micropolitans in the country. A micropolitan is defined as an urban area with a population between ten- and 50-thousand people and outlying areas with close economic ties to those communities. The study was conducted by a think tank called Heartland Forward. Cedar City is ranked eighth for its economic growth over the last five years. Only one other community in Utah made the list, Heber City, which ranked third.
