Morgan is a very small city located in the state of Utah. With a population of 4,223 people and three constituent neighborhoods, Morgan is the 111th largest community in Utah. Morgan has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years.

This seems to be the case in Morgan, where the median household income is $101,757.00.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.87% of the workforce.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
