(KSL News) Census data shows Utah is experiencing a new baby boom.

Nearly one in three Utah households is married with children, giving us the highest rate in the nation. And more of those households are having more children.

Experts say the state's unique culture, influenced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is fueling the boom.

But Utah's influx of immigrants also is helping the record births, as a lot of the immigrants who came in the 1990s are having their own children now.
