(Undated-AP) -- New census numbers released this week show Utah continues to lure new residents.

The Salt Lake City-Ogden region ranked 32nd in the nation by attracting more than 68,000 new residents from outside the area in 2001. Provo-Orem was 72nd, adding about 31,000 people.

The Los Angeles-Long Beach region in California pulled in the most new residents -- nearly 300-thousand people. Cities in the West and Southwest dominated the list in terms of attracting new residents.

The study counts both people who moved here from abroad, and those who relocated from elsewhere in the United States.
