Northern Idaho farming is characterized by dry land wheat, barley, and legume crops. Logging is a big part of the northern Idaho economy, although not as much as in the past. A favorite bumper sticker in north Idaho is "If You Don't Like Logging, Try Using Plastic Bags For Toilet Paper."  Similar to Washington and Oregon, there is a great disparity in the population of each half of the state.  North Idaho is significantly less populated than the southern half.

Idaho is second only to Utah in the number of members of ''The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints(LDS)'', or '''Mormons''', as a percentage of the population. Mormon religion and culture are particularly prevalent in Eastern Idaho, where the faith is at least as strong as anywhere in Utah. However, the LDS Church's influence diminishes considerably as one travels north of Boise towards the Idaho panhandle. Some of this difference is due to the largely Catholic populations brought in by the railroads through north Idaho in the late 1800's.
