SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A U.S. Census Bureau report shows residents from almost all of Utah’s 29 counties have commuted to Salt Lake County.

The report found rural Daggett County in the state’s northeast corner was the only county without residents driving to the state’s most populated county for work.

The data released last week is based on estimates from the Census Bureau’s 2013 American Community Survey.

It found about 103,000 Utah residents traveled from outside Salt Lake County for work.

Utah Department of Workforce Services economist Jim Robson told The Salt Lake Tribune (https://bit.ly/1PCyaSV ) that the survey is worded in a way that it could include workers who made one-time trips to visit a secondary work site or attend a meeting or conference.

Robson says many of the longest commutes likely involve workers in fields like construction.
