Davis County is a county in northern Utah, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the population was 306,479, making it Utah's third-most populous county, its county seat is Farmington, its largest city is Layton. Davis County is part of the Ogden-Clearfield, UT Metropolitan Statistical Area as well as the Salt Lake City-Provo-Orem, UT Combined Statistical Area; the legislature of the provisional State of Deseret defined the county in an October 5, 1850 act, which designated Farmington as the seat due to its location midway between boundaries at the Weber River on the north and the Jordan River on the south. It was named for Daniel C. Davis, a captain in the Mormon Battalion; the county boundaries were altered in 1852, in 1854, in 1855, in 1862. In 1880 the county gained part of the islands and waters of Great Salt Lake, attached to Salt Lake County; the county boundary has remained unchanged since that time. During its first 50 years, Davis County grew slowly. With the advent of the Utah Central Rail Road in 1870, a transition to mechanized agriculture and a surge of commerce, improved roads, new water systems, electrification of homes began.

However, by 1940, the population was 16,000. With the establishment of Hill Air Force Base in northern Davis County, there was a surge of civilian employment after World War II; the county doubled in population between 1940 and 1950, doubled again between 1950 and 1960 as part of the nationwide suburb boom, occurring at the time. By 1990 there were 188,000 residents, in 2000, there were 239,000. By 2030, the county is expected to have a population of about 360,000.

Davis County includes the lake's largest island.

The entire island is a state park, designated to protect natural scenery and wildlife on the island, which includes bighorn sheep, a bison herd. The inhabited portion of Davis County between the lake and the mountain range is called the Wasatch Front, a narrow stretch of land that restricts north-south transportation in the county.

Atoni

The Atoni people are an ethnic group on Timor, in Indonesian West Timor and the East Timorese enclave of Oecussi-Ambeno. They number around 844,030, their language is Uab Meto. The Atoni live in villages consisting of 50 to 60 people, each village is surrounded with stone fence or shrubs, with fields and cattle cages on the periphery; the houses form a circular cluster, or following the road after the introduction of a road. According to ethnographer Clarke Cunningham, their culture is notable for its spatial symbolism, associated with a gender dichotomy. Male-female principle is important, as with the duality of sun-earth, light-dark, open-close, dry season-wet season, outer-inner, central-periphery, secular-sacral, right-left, so on; this in turn affects the spatial configuration of an Atoni house. The right side of the house is always male; the center of the house is male. The interior of the house is female, the terrace is male; the house is female and the yard is male. This principle conceived the Atoni house as a microcosmos.

The house expresses social order. A more elaborate house is called Ume Atoni; the house is dominantly male in quality. The Atoni entertains their guest in a communal house called Lopo. A Lopo is oriented to the road. Furthermore, each cardinal direction is associated with a gender. Sex and gender do not always line up, as an important lord is called a "female-man," and is accordingly always a man, but performs stereotypically female duties. A species of skink, Eremiascincus antoniorum, endemic to Timor, is named in honor of the Antoni people. Clarke E. Cunningham, Atoni Borrowing Of Children: An Aspect Of Mediation, in: Spiro, M. E.
