SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A new Census report shows that Utah had more than 175,000 people in business for themselves in 2005 and that number is growing at one of the fastest rates in the country.

Utah saw an increase of 7.2 two percent in the number of self-employed business people one year. That's second only to Georgia's 7.6 percent increase.
