Florida is back!

Demographics and a map showing trends in Florida's population

| 3/31/2014

Florida's economy is back. Real estate is surging, unemployment is down and tourism is rising. Some counties are hard at work diversifying their economies, while others are beginning to capitalize on major infrastructure projects.

The Woods & Poole population figures below show Florida within hailing distance of 20 million in total population. Numbers from other respected sources, including the University of Florida's Bureau of Economic and Business Research, are somewhat more conservative. It's a good bet, however, that the state will pass that benchmark sometime before the end of 2015.

In Florida, the name of the game is again growth.

Ballot Box

Do you support the U.S. entering a nuclear deal with Iran?

  • Yes - Iran is only seeking energy
  • Yes - I don't trust Iran, but a deal is preferable to more involved middle-east intervention
  • No - keep or expand the sanctions; if Iran walks, it's on them...
  • No - We need an immediate, direct, military solution to settle this
