 Idaho
As of 2003, the population of Idaho was 1,366,332.
Idaho is a unique state religiously; it is the only state with large percentages of both Protestants (39%) and members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka Mormons) (30%), and as with many western states, there is also a large number of non-religious people (when compared to the nation as a whole).
Idaho is an important agricultural state, producing nearly one third of the potatoes grown in the United States.

In the draft risk-based end state vision document, the DOE Idaho Operations Office will layout a proposed new approach for cleanup at the INL.
The new vision for the end state at the INL when environmental cleanup is completed is that DOE will maintain control of the 890-square-mile facility in perpetuity.
Under the new approach cleanup standards would be made under the assumption that DOE will control the INL into the foreseeable future, instead of assuming that residents may one day occupy the land.

During recent years, two master’s degree students from Idaho State performed their thesis research with the INEL team and a University of Arizona student is working on a Ph.D. in high temperature ion emitters.
The dependence of the group on applications of interest to other agencies seems to have been salutary, especially in the building of an entrepreneurial approach with a laboratory where there is typically limited attention to the writing of proposals for external agencies.
Many of the most important "lessons" to be drawn from the work pertain to the development of execution of a basic research program within a laboratory setting where limited basic research is performed.
