Diversity » Fifty places in Utah are estimated to be 100 percent white. Most are small and rural and include Oakley, Spring City, Toquerville and Hildale.

Some larger places that have high rates of people who are non-Hispanic whites are: Fruit Heights, 98.1 percent; Hooper, 97.7; Highland, 97.3; Centerville, 96.8; and Grantsville, 96.7.

There are five places on the Ute or Navajo reservations that are estimated to have no white residents at all, including Montezuma Creek and Whiterocks. Several other places on reservations often have low percentages of whites.

Away from reservations, some places with relatively small percentages of whites include Clawson in Emery County, 60.7 percent; Copperton in Salt Lake County, 74.5; South Salt Lake, 76; West Valley City, 78.9; and Salt Lake City, 80.9.
