<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Utah's counties, including Salt Lake, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for South Jordan.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around South Jordan - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Area code (385) is an overlay for area code (801).

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether South Jordan or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- South Jordan) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for South Jordan. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from South Jordan
