Volume 3, No. 1Spring 2002THE Tampa Bay EconomyQuarterly Journal of the Center for Economic Development ResearchTax Refund Program for Qualified Target Industry Businesses Continued on page 2 OUTLINE OF THE STATUTE 288.106 Tax refund program for qualified target industry businesses. (1) DEFINITIONS (2) TAX REFUND; ELIGIBLE AMOUNTS (3) APPLICATION AND APPROVAL PROCESS (4) TAX REFUND AGREEMENT (5) ANNUAL CLAIM FOR REFUND (6) ADMINISTRATION By Dennis G. Colie,Associate Director of the Center for Economic Development Research with Alex McPherson,Economist with the Center for Economic Development Research The purpose of this article is to estimate the economic impact of the State of Florida Qualified Target Industry (QTI) Tax Refund program for a hypothetical increase of jobs in the Tampa Bay region. QTI is an economic development incentive that may be offered to businesses by all levels of government within the state of Florida. A Summary of Florida's Qualified Target Industry Program The Qualified Target Industry Tax Refund Program is available to Florida communities to encourage the expansion of existing businesses or the location of new-to-Florida businesses. The program currently provides tax refunds to pre-approved applicants of $3,000 per new job created ($6,000 in an Enterprise Zone or rural county). A company that pays an average of at least 150 percent of area wages receives an additional $1,000 per job. And a company that pays an average of at least 200 percent of area wages receives an additional $2,000 per job. A maximum of 25% of the total tax refund may be paid in a single fiscal year. According to the Office of Trade,Tourism and Economic Development (OTTED),the objective of the QTI incentive is "to create high-value jobs and encourage the growth of corporate headquarters and other targeted high-value industries."1The QTI financial incentive is one of eleven incentives listed at the State of Florida's website, MyFlorida. OTTED certifies,disburses and monitors these incentive programs,which are administered by Enterprise Florida,Inc. When the State's Legislature did away with the Florida Department of Commerce in 1996,the state's economic development functions were placed with a public / private partnership named Enterprise Florida,Inc. (EFI). However, certain related activities,such as oversight of financial incentives,have remained in the public sector. OTTED fulfills the oversight of financial-incentives function. The QTI program is authorized by section 288.106 F.S. A sense of purpose of the program is implied by definitions provided in the statute. Under the definition of a "target industry business"the statute authorizes OTTED,in consultation with Enterprise Florida,Inc.,to develop the list of targeted industries using the following criteria: 1. Future growth "... strong expectation for future growth in both employment and output ..." 2. Stability "... not ... subject to periodic layoffs ... also relatively resistant to recession ..." 3. High wage "... pay relatively high wages compared to statewide or area averages." 4. Market and resource independent "The location of industry businesses should not be dependent on Florida markets or resources as indicated by industry analysis." 5. Industrial base diversification and strengthening "... contribute toward expanding or diversifying the state's or area's economic base ..." 6. Economic benefits "strong positive impacts on or benefits to the state and regional economies."

They are excluded from the QTI program by law. The law excludes "any industry engaged in retail activities; any electrical utility company; any phosphate or other solid minerals severance,mining,or processing operation; any oil or gas exploration or production operation; or any firm subject to regulation by the Division of Hotels and Restaurants of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation."

To receive a tax refund a business in a qualified target industry must submit an application to OTTED. To qualify for review of its application by OTTED the business must establish that it will: 1. pay an estimated annual average wage of at least 115% of the average private-sector wage in the area where the business will locate or statewide,i.e. high-wage jobs, 2. create at least 10 of these high-wage jobs,or if an expansion,increase high-wage employment by not less than 10% of existing jobs,and 3. be in targeted "high-value added industries that contribute to the area and to the economic growth in the state and that produce a higher standard of living for citizens of this state in the new global economy ..."

Finally,if tax refunds are offered by the State to the applicant,the business must enter into a tax refund agreement. Refunds can then be made for the corporate income and insurance premium taxes due and paid beginning with the first taxable year of the business after entering into the agreement. In addition,refunds for the following types of taxes due and paid can be made after entering into the agreement: 1. sales and use taxes, 2. intangible taxes, 3. excise taxes,and 4. ad valorem (property) taxes. There are also some important limitations on the tax refunds that can be received by a qualified business. Refunds may not exceed 25 percent of the total tax refunds specified in the agreement or $1.5 million ($2.5 million in an Enterprise Zone) in a single fiscal year. Furthermore, the total refund over all fiscal years cannot exceed $5 million ($7.5 million in an Enterprise Zone). The use of economic development incentives is not a new policy tool,rather incentives have been around for years. Notwithstanding the longevity of incentive-policy,incentives are becoming increasingly controversial. In a study prepared for the Economic Development Administration, an agency of the US Department of Commerce,Poole (1999) et al. list the following reasons of concern: 1. the cumulative costs of incentive programs over time, 2. competition for public revenues among various government agencies and levels of government, 3. the offering of incentives to large corporations,which are often perceived as not needing the benefit,creates a negative public view of incentive-policy,and 4. studies intended to evaluate incentive programs have inadequately defined the comprehensive fiscal and economic impacts of these programs.

There is intense competition among communities for new and expanding industry. The lack of a profitability constraint on public enterprise leads to the danger that states and municipalities may end up over-bidding for new businesses. For example,Clark (1999) relates that in 1993 Alabama reported an incentive package for a new Mercedes plant that equaled $168,000 per new job. Presumably,the competition for Mercedes centered about maintaining and expanding local employment opportunities. It is hard to imagine an economic scenario in which there would be a rational payback period for the taxpayers of Alabama for such a high cost. Another issue complicating the role of tax incentives is the changing structure of modern economies. Stucki and Andrews (1999),for example,argue that a transition from an industrial economy to an Information-Age Economy is a worldwide phenomenon. The Information-Age Economy is deemed to be a knowledge-based economy requiring the creation of an intellectual infrastructure based on active links among academia,industry,and economic development organizations. In Stucki and Andrew's InformationAge Economy,traditional economic incentives,such as tax abatement,reduce the cost to a business of a factor input (labor,capital,land or some combination thereof) but they do not have the catalytic effect of knowledge. The on-going transition to information based economies feeds into the perceived role of economic development,an important goal of which has long been to bring (or to retain) jobs into a region. This goal makes sense when a region has pools of unemployed capital and workers. However,beginning in the mid-1990s the unemployment rate consistently declined in most regions,reaching 30-year lows in 2000. In response to the changing economic environment,the goal of economic development has shifted from attracting jobs to attracting jobs paying good wages And,good wages are assumed to be associated with "competitive,profitable firms employing educated workers in high-skill,high-wage industries."(Clark,pp. 3-4) Accordingly,much economic development activity in the Tampa Bay region focuses on attracting high-tech industries. The emphasis on attracting high-tech industry poses a conceptual challenge for programs,such as the QTI Tax Refund Program,that are based upon reducing a firms' labor costs. According to economic principles,the consequence of relatively less costly labor will be some substitution of labor for capital. The substitution of labor for capital may not be conducive to developing an Information-Age,high-tech economy. Financial incentives that effectively reduce the cost of labor relative to the cost of capital favor manufacturing i.e. labor intensive,businesses over knowledge-intensive businesses. Mackay (1994) reports on a survey of economic development professionals and corporate real estate executives. Interestingly,in the survey,49% of economic developers indicated they would prefer a situation in which no incentives were offered for projects,while only 17% of corporate real estate executives "thought positively of a situation in which incentives would not play a role in corporate relocation-expansion."3Although the corporate real estate executives stated that their companies were continuously seeking increasing amounts of incentives,they stressed that incentives are secondary to other location factors. Only 25% of the NACORE respondents felt that a community not offering incentives would be at a competitive disadvantage. However,63% of economic developers indicated their belief that not offering incentives would place their communities at a competitive disadvantage. Among location screening factors,incentives were ranked 14th of 17 factors by the NACORE respondents. Mackay concludes that,although economic development incentives from communities are far down the list of criteria for selecting a site location for a new plant or other facility,they remain significant to both economic development organizations and corporations,particularly when it comes down to the final relocation / retention decision. Incentives are a big part of Florida's economic development strategy. The Florida Economic Development Council (FEDC) "support[s] continued funding of the Qualified Targeted Industry Tax Refund Program (QTI)" as one of "Florida's three most important key investment tools or 3 Keys."4The importance of the QTI Program for high-tech industry development is less certain in one such initiative,the Florida High Tech Corridor. The Florida High Tech Corridor Council's list used to "report and populate the florida.high.tech 2001 corporate guide"does not include most QTI industries.5 However,commonality exists within Chemicals and Allied Products (SIC 28),Industrial Machinery and Equipment (SIC 35),Electronic and Other Electric Equipment (SIC 36),Instruments and Related Products (SIC 38),and Communications (SIC 48). Estimating the Impact of QTI on Tampa Bay In order to estimate the economic impact of adding jobs to Tampa Bay's economy in targeted industries of the QTI Program,we use the IMPLAN ProfessionalTMSocial Accounting and Impact Analysis Software with 1998 (the most recent available) data by county.6The IMPLAN software is an economic input-output model. The historical data are used to develop a model that quantifies economic interactions in terms of the flow of dollars from purchasers to producers within the Tampa Bay region. From the descriptive model we calculate a set of multipliers and use them to predict changes in employment,income,output,and government's tax revenues for each industry in the model. For each target industry we direct the IMPLAN computer model to inject 100 hypothetical jobs into a specified industry and observe the model's prediction of economicTax Refund Program for Qualified Target Industry Businesses Continued from page 34

5 Continued on page 6 At the top of Table 1 are the 1998 Tampa Bay baseline population and aggregate personal income,from which we calculate personal income per capita. Before adding the 100 jobs in Carpets and Rugs,personal income per capita in Tampa Bay was $26,569.87. We use the change in regional per capita personal income as the principal gauge of the impact of the 100 added jobs. Other measures of the impact that are also shown in Table 1 are increases in employment,output,and government revenue. Section 288.106 F.S. states,"Average private sector wage in the area means the statewide private sector average wage or the average of all private sector wages and impact. The impact is comprised of three effects:direct, indirect and induced. The direct effect is the 100 new jobs and their concomitant increases in income,output and tax revenues. The indirect effect is the increases in employment,income,output,and tax revenues attributable to other businesses in the supplier chain of the industry. The induced effect is the increases in employment,income,output,and tax revenues due to more income,and consequently greater spending by the households that have directly or indirectly benefited from the originally added 100 jobs. Table 1 presents a detailed economic impact analysis for one industry. The purpose of Table 1 is to demonstrate the method of analysis we use to determine economic impacts. Subsequent tables,with less detail,will be used to explain the findings of our analysis. IMPLAN employs an industry sector scheme that can be bridged to the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system. Table 1 shows the impact of an injection of 100 jobs into the Carpets and Rugs manufacturing industry. The results presented in Table 1 are based on IMPLAN sector 117,which bridges to SIC 2270 Carpets and Rugs.

Note 3:Does not include an incremental ad valorem (property) tax paid by corporations.Table 1Impact of Adding 100 Jobs in Carpets and Rugs Aggregated ImpactAverage Impact per Added Job salaries in the county or in the standard metropolitan area in which the business is located."However,the statute does not make clear how the average wage is calculated. One way to calculate an average wage is to use ES202 data to find the employment-weighted average of wages reported by firms in the area. The ES202 data set is a collection of job and wage data from all employers participating in Florida's unemployment insurance program. Because self-employed proprietors do not contribute to the unemployment insurance system,they are not included in the ES202 data. ES202 wages include only monetary payments to employeesbenefits received in-kind,such as medical insurance,are not included in ES202 wages. In 1998,on average,the annual wage in the Carpets and Rugs industry in Tampa Bay was $27,521. The average industry wage calculated using ES202 data is a different measure from personal income per capita used in this analysis. As reflected in Table 1,personal income is the sum of employee compensation,proprietors'income and property income. Personal income per capita is a more comprehensive measure of the economic impact of jobscreation than an average ES202 industry wage. In the illustration of Table 1,the 100 jobs,which are directly added to the regional economy,motivate the creation of 107.5 more jobs. Thus,the total increase in employment is 207.5 jobs. Employee compensation is a component of personal income. The IMPLAN model estimates a direct increase in employee compensation of $3,357,922 or an average of $33,579 per added job. Because the model's employee compensation measurement includes non-cash benefits,but ES202 wages do not,we estimate that on average a "benefits package"in the Carpets and Rugs industry costs the employer $6,058 per job. ($6,058 is the difference between employee compensation and the ES202 wage in the Carpet and Rug manufacturing industry.) That is,the employer spends about 18 percent of employee compensation for benefits such as health insurance and retirement plans. The IMPLAN estimate of the total increase in employment compensation (which includes direct,indirect and induced employment) is $6,264,687,or $30,191 per added job. Note that the indirect and induced jobs offer lower average levels of employee compensation than do the direct jobs. Thus,it may be seen that,while an incentive program may lure relatively high-wage jobs,the program may also be responsible for the creation of additional jobs paying lower employee compensation. These lower-wage jobs tend to reduce the total impact of the 100 jobs directly added to the economy. Continuing the illustration of Table 1,total labor income due to the hypothetical 100 added jobs is $6,707,371,or $32,325 per job.7Self-employed persons receive somewhat higher compensation than employees do when performing work in the Carpets and Rug manufacturing industry. Thus,average labor income exceeds average employee compensation.

6 Another component of personal income is property income. Property income consists of payments from rents, royalties,dividends,interest,as well as firms'retained earnings. Property income is an estimate of the money flows to the owners of capital due to the hypothetical 100 added jobs. Total property income is $3,587,532. Personal income is the sum of labor income and property income. Total personal income generated in Tampa Bay by the hypothetical 100 added jobs is $10,294,903,of which $5,542,107 is directly attributable to the added 100 jobs. Direct personal income per capita is $55,427 per added job,but the total effect (including direct,indirect, and induced jobs) is $49,614 per capita. The average per capita personal income from new jobs is much higher than Tampa Bay's baseline personal income per capita. But, how much would overall personal income per capita increase? That is,what is the average per person benefit for each resident of Tampa Bay? The average per person increase in personal income is a gauge of the impact of an incentive program that adds jobs to a region's economy. In the case illustrated by Table 1,and assuming no increase in the region's population,the model's projected increase in personal income per capita is $3.03. However,the assumption of "no population"increase is realistic only when there is some slack in the region's labor market. If there is no slack in the labor market (the region is at full employment) all new workers must migrate into the region. In that case,the total of 207.5 newly created jobs increases Tampa Bay's per capita personal income by $1.41. From this example,it is seen that the utility of an incentive to add jobs to a region's economy is sensitive to the region's labor market slack. When there is slack in the labor market,i.e. qualified and unemployed residents already available in the region,an incentive program to create jobs has a higher utility than when the regional economy is already at full employment. Output is the value of goods and services produced in the region. Output is a measure of the total value of intermediate purchases of an industry plus the value added by the industry to the intermediate purchases. In Table 1,the direct output expected from the hypothetical 100 new jobs is $19,415,554 or about $194,156 per job. The total effect (including direct,indirect,and induced output) is $28,056,143 of output,or $135,210 per job. The IMPLAN model also provides an estimate of new tax revenues that will be generated as a result of the hypothetical addition of 100 jobs to the regional economy. The model's estimate,shown in Table 1,is over $2.66 million in new tax revenue:$1.94 million in federal revenue and $0.72 million in State and local revenue. That is,federal tax revenue is expected to increase $9,365 per new job and combined state / local tax revenues are expected to go up by $3,463 per new job. Table 1 illustrated the method we use to analyze the economic impact of creating 100 jobs in the Carpets and Rugs industry. An industry is identified by a four-digit SIC code which is 2270 in the case of carpets and rugs manufacturing. However,qualified target industries are designated at the two-digit SIC code level. According to the nomenclature of the SIC system,a two-digit code identifies a "major group" of industries. The Carpets and Rugs industry is a part of major group 22,which is called Textile Mill Products. Table 2 summarizes the findings of the analysis of the Textile Mill Products major group. The IMPLAN sector scheme bridges to 15 industries or grouping of industries within the Textile Mill Products major group. Out of the 15,six were manufacturing products in Tampa Bay in 1998. One of the six is a grouping of industries designated in Table 2 as SIC 22XX,Broadwoven Fabrics. The remaining five are individual industries. The findings of Table 2 are based on an input-output analysis of majorgroup-22 businesses that already exist in Tampa Bay.Tax Refund Program for Qualified Target Industry Businesses Continued from page 5 Tampa Bay Baseline 1998 Population3,393,498 Aggregate Personal Income (000s)$90,164,790 Personal Income per Capita$26,569.87 100 New Jobs -Impacts on Major Industry Group 22 SICDescriptionDirectIndirectInducedTotal 22XX (Note 1)Broadwoven Fabrics$2,461,926$1,815,973$1,565,942$5,843,841 2240Narrow fabrics$5,109,645$746,506$2,371,286$8,227,437 2253Knit Outerwear$1,634,049$683,841$878,375$3,196,265 2270Carpets and Rugs$5,542,726$2,264,954$2,487,223$10,294,903 2295Coated Fabrics$2,043,492$4,296,415$2,376,717$8,716,624 2298Corda g e$3,095,908$1,766,418$1,873,720$6,736,046 Average$3,314,624$1,929,018$1,925,544$7,169,186 SICDescriptionDirectIndirectInducedTotal 22XX (Note 1)Broadwoven Fabrics10041.037.1178.1 2240Narrow fabrics10016.656.3172.9 2253Knit Outerwear10016.320.8137.1 2270Carpets and Rugs10048.559.0207.5 2295Coated Fabrics10085.356.4241.7 2298Corda g e10034.344.4178.7 Average10040.345.7186.0 SICDescriptionDirectIndirectInducedTotal 22XX (Note 1)Broadwoven Fabrics$11,076,791$3,290,939$2,626,523$16,994,253 2240Narrow fabrics$8,558,966$1,354,781$3,977,308$13,891,055 2253Knit Outerwear$7,292,071$1,246,214$1,473,281$10,011,566 2270Carpets and Rugs$19,415,554$4,468,821$4,171,768$28,056,143 2295Coated Fabrics$18,339,128$8,478,033$3,986,419$30,803,580 2298Corda g e$9,645,316$3,428,743$3,142,741$16,216,800 Average$12,387,971$3,711,255$3,229,673$19,328,900 SICDescriptionFederalState/LocalTotal 22XX (note 1)Broadwoven Fabrics$1,172,032$446,606$1,618,638 2240Narrow fabrics$1,714,553$453,273$2,167,826 2253Knit Outerwear$649,687$213,278$862,965 2270Carpets and Rugs$1,943,231$718,564$2,661,795 2295Coated Fabrics$1,782,071$779,177$2,561,248 2298Corda g e$1,390,402$519,963$1,910,365 Average$1,441,996$521,810$1,963,806 Tampa Bay after Adding 100 Jobs -1998 Population(no change)3,393,498 Aggregate Personal Income (000s)$90,171,959 Personal Income (PI) per Capita$26,571.98 Increase in PI per Capita $2.11 Population(increase = new jobs)3,393,684 Aggregate Personal Income (000s)$90,171,959 Personal Income (PI) per Capita$26,570.52 Increase in PI per Capita $0.66 Note 1:22xx includes SICs 2210, 2220, 2230, 2261, and 2262 Increase in Output Increase in Taxes Table 2 Impact of Adding 100 Jobs in Textile Mill Products Increase in Personal Income Increase in Employment

7 Continued on page 8 On average,100 new jobs in the Textile Mill Products major group in Tampa Bay would be expected to motivate 86 additional jobs for a total of 186 jobs. The average increase in personal income is $7,169,186. If all 186 jobs were filled by existing residents,i.e. no population change, the increase in personal income per capita for Tampa Bay's residents is $2.11. On the other hand,if all 186 jobs were filled by in-migrants to Tampa Bay,the increase in personal income per capita is only $0.66. The creation of 100 new jobs in Textile Mill Products major group would also be expected to increase annual regional output by $19,328,900 and combined federal, state and local tax revenues by $1,963,806 per year. Furthermore,Table 2 illustrates that there is a wide range of potential outcomes for job-creation targeted at a major group as opposed to an industry. In the illustration, 100 jobs in Carpets and Rugs (SIC 2270) increase total personal income by $10,294,903. This is the high end of the range for personal income. At the low end of the range, 100 jobs in Knit Outerwear (SIC 2253) increase total personal income by $3,196,265. Table 3 reports increases in personal income per capita for QTI-qualified major industry groups. One hundred jobs are created in each industry that had at least one firm operating in Tampa Bay during 1998. The reported increases are the average of the increases for each industry within the QTI-qualified major industry group. The anticipated increases in personal income per capita assuming there is no in-migration to fill the newly created jobs range from a high of $6.86 for the Chemical and Allied Products major industry group to a low of $1.85 for the Miscellaneous Manufacturing major industry group.

8A Summary of Findings In summary,we analyze the economic impact of the QTI Tax Refund program for a hypothetical increase of 100 jobs in the Tampa Bay region. The analysis includes the indirect and induced jobs also generated as the multiplier effect of the 100 direct jobs ripples through Tampa Bay's economy. Although the enabling legislation implies that an increase in the average wage be used as a measure of impact,our primary yardstick for the analysis is the increase in personal income per capita when the 100 jobs are created within Tampa Bay's economy. We use personal income per capita because it is a more comprehensive measure of economic impact of job-creation than average wages. Personal income per capita measures the impact with regard to the economic well being of all residents of Tampa Bay. Average wages only measure the impact on those persons (and indirectly their households) who are employed. Furthermore,a wage measurement usually excludes employee benefits and always leaves out the property income of the owners of capital. Our analysis reveals two important observations with respect to Florida's QTI Tax Refund program. First,the QTI program actually targets major industry groups,not specific industries. As the example,in Table 2,of the Textile Mill Products major industry group shows,there can be a large variation in the personal income impacts among the industries within a major group. In Textile Mill Products the largest total increase in personal income (Carpets and Rugs,SIC 2270) is more than three times the smallest increase in personal income (Knit Outerwear,SIC 2253). Hence,targeting at the industry level increases the efficiency of a job-creation scheme. Our second observation is that the condition of the region's labor market is a determinant of the impact of jobcreation on personal income per capita. When the Tampa Bay's unemployment rate is low and the workforce participation rate is high,many of the newly created jobs will be filled by in-migrants. Increased population dilutes the impact of job-creation as measured by personal income per capita. The example in Table 2 shows that the increase in personal income per capita will be reduced by as much as two-thirds,if the new jobs were filled by in-migrants. Thus,it seems prudent to suspend job-creation programs when unemployment is low and workforce participation is high. Alternatively,the job-creation program should mandate the number of newly created direct jobs that must be filled by current residents of Tampa Bay.

Continued on page 109 Economic Patterns in Hillsborough County in 1997: Hillsborough County Zip Code Business,Employment and Farm Patterns AnalysisBy Gina B. Space,Economist with the Center for Economic Development Research When conducting local economic development,it is important to know both the composition of the local economy and those factors that set your community apart from its neighbors. Fortunately,there are a number of sources of public data concerning regional economies. Most data is available for standard political jurisdictions such as counties and metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs). MSAs are groups of economically integrated counties. Much less public information is available below the county level. The dearth of information can make planning and execution of local development difficult. Local economic development officials can frequently help to fill that gap,based upon their intimate knowledge of their community. But,as useful as individual knowledge of an area can be,accurate data on the distribution of economic activities on a sub-county basis will generally be viewed as more reliable. In addition,a single data source is comparable across communities. Sub-county economic data is available in the Zip Code Business Patterns,but here too,many find the identification of zip codes in a county a difficult and cumbersome process. Since zip codes cross political boundaries,government officials may hesitate to use zip code data to conduct policy analysis and planning activities. Two methods of disaggregating zip code level data can improve its usefulness in regional analysis. First,if the data is mapped geographically,zip code identification becomes a much smaller problem. When viewed in map format,neighborhoods and commercial activity centers can be viewed by reference to streets and other natural boundaries. Second,if the zip code data is allocated to sub-county political jurisdictions such as incorporated cities,totals can be provided for each jurisdiction,facilitating government planning and analysis. This analysis summarizes a report conducted in collaboration with the Hillsborough County Economic Development Department. The report mapped economic activity,measured by number of business and farm establishments and by employment,and allocated the data by sub-county political jurisdictions in Hillsborough County. The Economic Development Department administers programs that sustain and encourage the economic growth of the local economy,including job creation programs. Knowing the distribution of businesses,farms and employment helps the Department balance the needs of the entire community,including businesses,farmers and employees,when implementing programs supporting the county business community. Data The analysis is based on three data sources: the 1997 Zip Code Business Patterns,published in May 2000 by the Economics and Statistics Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce; the 1997 U.S. Census of Agriculture Zip Code tabulation; and ESRI's ArcView Geographic Information System,a desktop mapping software program which maps zip code boundaries. The Zip Code Business Patterns data cover all private business establishments with one or more paid employees. Data are not included for self-employed persons,domestic service workers,railroad employees,agriculture production workers and most government employees. For example,the data for zip code 33620,which includes the University of South Florida's Tampa Campus,does not reflect the large number of employees at USF,because these employees are government employees. Business establishments are further defined as:"a single physical location at which business is conducted or services or industrial operations are performed."Thus,a single business establishment could be only one of several branches of a corporation and is not a measure of the number of companies in a geographic area. Total employment covers all fulland part-time employees,and salaried officers and executives of corporations. Employees on paid leave are also included in the count. However,proprietors and partners of unincorporated businesses are not included. The Census of Agriculture is conducted every five years by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The 1997 Census of Agriculture Zip Code Tabulation report covers all farms in all 50 states. The Census of Agriculture was conducted in 1998 and refers to farms and farming activity conducted in 1997. The Census defines a farm as "any place from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were produced or sold,or normally would have been sold during the census year."(See the endnotes for limitations of the Zip Code Tabulation report.1) The zip code locations and boundaries were identified using ESRI's ArcView Geographic Information System, a desktop mapping software program. The zip codes used in this analysis were released on the 1999 "Data and Maps"compact disc under license to ESRI from Geographic Data Technology,Inc (GDT). GDT zip code boundaries are based primarily on 1998 U.S. Postal Service data. As zip codes and boundaries change from time to time,it is important to keep in mind that these are 1998 zip codes. However,because the business and farm

10Economic Patterns in Hillsborough County in 1997: Hillsborough County Zip Code Business,Employment and Farm Patterns Analysis Continued from page 9 data are from 1997,a high amount of geographic consistency is expected throughout the data. Methodology Several zip codes within Hillsborough County cross political jurisdictions. Other zip codes contain addresses in as many as three different jurisdictions. Still other zip codes contain land and associated businesses and employment located in counties adjacent to Hillsborough County. In order to obtain summary data by sub-county political jurisdiction,it was necessary to allocate the number of business establishments and employees in each multi-jurisdictional zip code that fall within and outside of each political jurisdiction. The allocations are made for zip codes containing two or more political jurisdictions within the county and for zip codes that include areas outside of the county boundary. Establishments and employment in multi-jurisdictional zip codes are allocated by calculating the percentage of land area in each political jurisdiction within the zip code. The percentages are then applied to the totals for that zip code. The result is an estimate of the number of businesses,farms and employment contained in each political jurisdiction's portion of each multi-jurisdictional zip code. This technique necessarily assumes that businesses and employment are uniformly distributed throughout each multi-jurisdictional zip code. While this assumption may be inexact,there is no systematic bias in using this technique,which is expected to randomly result in underestimation in some places and overestimation in others. Additionally,given the large number of establishments and employment in the county and number of estimates calculated,it is likely that the net effect is negligible. Analysis It is estimated that in 1997 there were 25,800 private businesses in Hillsborough County,including all incorporated political subdivisions,employing 470,573 persons. Estimates show Hillsborough County contained 2,695 farms with 1,250 persons with farming as their principal occupation. Of these totals,an estimated 13,696 establishments,221,113 employees,2,340 farms and 1,104 principal occupation farmers are in the unincorporated portion of Hillsborough County. (See Table 1.) By these estimates, the unincorporated portion of Hillsborough County contains 53.1% of all business establishments,47.0% of all employment,86.8% of all farms and 88.4% of all principal occupation farmers. The City of Tampa contained an estimated 11,395 business establishments,237,029 employees,210 farms and 77 principal occupation farmers. The City of Tampa contains a smaller proportion of the county's business establishments than the unincorporated county (44.2% to 53.1%),but a larger proportion of the employment (50.4% to 47.0%). This reflects in part the higher structural density for commercial office space in certain locations within the City of Tampa. Higher structural density is found in places such as the Central Business District (downtown) and much of Westshore. The farm distribution also reflects land use values and patterns. The majority (88.4%) of farms and principal occupation farmers (85.5%) are located in unincorporated Hillsborough County. The remainder are split mostly between Plant City (4.8%) and the City of Tampa (7.8%). However,the relatively high number of farms in the data for Tampa is most likely a result of farm owners'mailing

11 addresses in city zip codes,rather than substantial farming activity in the city. Business Establishments Eight zip codes in Hillsborough County contain over 1,000 business establishments. Of these,two zip codes are exclusively in unincorporated Hillsborough County (33511 and 33618) and two are in the City of Tampa (33609 and 33602). The largest number of businesses in unincorporated Hillsborough County is the Brandon area with 1,326,followed by Carrollwood with 1,002. The City of Tampa's businesses are concentrated in the Westshore area,which contains 1,649 establishments,and downtown Tampa,which is home to 1,152 establishments. The other four zip codes with more than 1,000 business establishments are not exclusive to a single political jurisdiction; these zip codes have areas in both the unincorporated county and Tampa. In these zip codes,it is estimated that the City of Tampa has 3,202 business establishments and the unincorporated county contains 2,497. However,unincorporated Hillsborough County contains several additional large zip codes with a substantial number of businesses. As a result, it is estimated that the unincorporated county contains 2,301 more business establishments than the City of Tampa. Employment Two zip codes in Hillsborough County contain over 50,000 employees:33607 with 58,112; and 33619 with 54,093. Zip code 33607 is almost entirely in the City of Tampa (96.5%) and the majority of 33619 lies in unincorporated Hillsborough County (86.6%). Several other zip codes that encompass parts of both unincorporated Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa contain large numbers of employees. Although there are a large number of establishments distributed throughout much of the county,employment in the unincorporated portion of Hillsborough County is concentrated around the City of Tampa's legal boundaries. Total employment in the City of Tampa is estimated to be slightly greater than employment in the unincorporated county. The employment distribution reflects high structural density buildings in the downtown area (zip code 33602) and the Westshore business district (33609 and 33607),which contain larger business establishments with more employees per firm. Farms and Principal Occupation Farmers Unincorporated Hillsborough County contains by far the largest number of farms and principal occupation farmers in the county. The unincorporated portion of the county contains 2,340 farms,or nearly 87% of all farms in the county,and 1,104 principal occupation farmers. Tampa registers 210 farms and 77 principal occupation farmers; however,it is difficult to discern if that is a result of the mailing list method of data collection or if there are active farms within the City of Tampa. Plant City contains 128 farms and 64 principal occupation farmers. As expected,farms and farmers are concentrated in the eastern and southern parts of Hillsborough County. A relatively large number of farms appear also in the northwest portion of Hillsborough County. While there are a substantial number of principal occupation farmers in Hillsborough County,it is important to note that more farm owners have occupations other than farming. This could be an indication of lifestyle farmers,tenant farming and/or an inability to generate sufficient income from farming alone. Further study would be required to draw conclusions.

12Economic Patterns in Hillsborough County in 1997: Hillsborough County Zip Code Business,Employment and Farm Patterns Analysis Continued from page 11 Demographic Changes in Southeast Pasco CountyBy Gina B. Space,Economist with the Center for Economic Development Research It is well publicized that Florida's population is growingrapidly. Population grew from 9,746,324 in 1980 to 12,937,926 in 1990 and to 15,982,378 in 20001. This represents a twenty-year growth rate of 64.0%,compared to the national rate of 21.8%. It is also widely appreciated that some parts of the state have grown,and may continue to grow,faster than others. Counties may grow at different rates for several reasons. Some areas may be built-out to capacity,leaving little room for growth. Other areas start with large population bases and therefore show smaller growth rates since the rate of growth declines with the size of the base. Moreover,economic activity and opportunity in an area influences individuals' choices of residency and may either foster or dampen growth. Especially in metropolitan areas,as the population grows outward from the central city,land use and zoning regulations tend to steer growth and development in specific directions. The Tampa Bay area is a big contributor to Florida's high population growth rates. Other studies have documented rapid population growth in Tampa Bay and the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metropolitan Statistical Area. This article examines one rapidly urbanizing area in Tampa Bay,the southeast section of Pasco County. We examine recent growth patterns and their effect on the age distribution of the population. For the purpose of this article,southeast Pasco County is defined by census tracts. The area includes the following tracts:321.01,321.02,328,329,330.01,330.02,330.03, 330.04,and 331. Geographically,this area is bounded by Interstate 75 on the west and the county line on the south and east. The northern boundary follows approximately State Road 52a and State Highway 579a. The area will be referred to as southeast Pasco and is shown in Map 1. From 1980 to 2000,the population in southeast Pasco more than doubled. The area's population grew at a twenty-year rate of 119.8%almost twice as fast as Florida's rate of 64.0%. Pasco County's population grew 78.0% over the twenty years,also greater than the state rate,but substantially less than southeast portion of the county. The overwhelmConclusions We find that the unincorporated portion of Hillsborough County contains the majority of:business establishments (53.1%) in the county; farms (86.8%); and farmers,both principal occupation farmers (88.4%) and farmers with other occupations (85.5%). The City of Tampa contains just slightly more than half of all employment in the county (50.4%). The unincorporated county's employment comes in a close second to Tampa containing 47.0% of total county employment. Plant City and Temple Terrace combined contain less than 3% of business establishments and employment. The geographic distribution of businesses shows that commerce is spread across the county. However,the distribution of employment does not follow precisely the same pattern. While employment is concentrated in a few areas,business establishments flourish throughout populated areas. This is a result of the natural business model. As establishments locate where customers can be found, establishments found in the outlying areas of the county presumably serve retail demand from the suburbs. Further analysis of the data by industry sector should confirm these conclusions. 1The Zip Code Tabulation report of farm data has some limitations. One limitation is the method used to gather the data. The data is collected using mailing addresses and there are some instances in which the mailing address zip code for a farm is not the same as,or included in,the zip code where the farm is located (i.e. post office boxes,other business addresses,etc.). Thus,a farm may be reported in a central business district since the farm owner receives business mail there,but the farm can be physically located miles away. Additionally,zip codes with fewer than five farms are aggregated in a separate category for each state and are not reported for the zip code of record. Likewise,zip codes with no farms do not appear in the zip code tabulation. A lack of data should not be taken as an indication of no farms or farming activity,because such zip code could contain fewer than four farms. Alternatively,one cannot assume that a small number farms exist in zip codes with no data.

13 ing majority of the growth in southeast Pasco is found in the area just north of Hillsborough County,running from I-75 to Zephyrhills,with State Road 54 cutting almost through the middle from west to east. This area contributed 82.7% of the total population growth experienced in that section of the county. The proximity of I-75 and the use of SR 54 as a connector to I-75 have served as an inducement for new residential growth as they lower the cost of transportation to major employment and commercial centers in the Tampa Bay area. Growth is changing the overall demographics of southeast Pasco. In 1980,almost half of the area's population was over age 55 (49.3%) and over one-third of the population was over 65 (34.5%). Today,those figures are smaller:41.9% of the population is older than 55 and 30.3% is over 65. These figures are still substantially higher than the average population distribution nationally,where 21.1% of the population is over 55 and only 12.4% is over 65. As southeast Pasco continues to urbanize,will the population become more representative of the U.S.? Or will the area continue to be a retirement destination? An examination of the changing demographics will help answer those questions. There are two ways to analyze the changing age of the southeast Pasco population. A straightforward method is to analyze the growth in population by age range in stasis. The second method is more complicated. It consists of examining the changes in population figures over time,as we follow age group cohorts over twenty years. The results of the two methods can be dramatically different. The population in southeast Pasco is shown in Table 1 by age range for census years 1980,1990 and 2000. Table 2 shows the absolute changes and Table 3 shows the percent change in each age group. Both tables cover three time spans: 1980 to 1990; 1990 to 2000; and 1980 to 2000. Separating the growth by decade highlights the shift in the age of the typical newcomer to southeast Pasco. From 1980 to 1990,it was much more likely for an older,established person to move into southeast Pasco than for someone under 25. Between 1980 and 1990,southeast Pasco added 5,828 residents over 65 to only 2,334 under 25,a ratio of two and one-half to one. In the same time period,southeast Pasco showed the largest absolute growth (6,427) in persons of labor-force age (25 to 64). For the 1990's decade,the population growth shifted. Continuing to dominate the growth are persons between the ages 25 and 64,adding 10,149 people and accounting for 56.8% of total growth. However,from 1990 to 2000, growth was much more pronounced in the younger generation than in the elder one. Southeast Pasco added 4,813 residents under 25,compared to 2,911 residents over 65, almost the reverse of the previous ten years. For the sum total twenty years,the population growth distribution was slightly skewed to the older age ranges,but the overall growth was still dominated by working-age persons. The two age ranges with the highest twenty-year growth rates are those aged 34 to 45 and 45 to 54,growing 263.2% and 199.7% respectively. The turnaround in the population growth of the younger ages in the 1990's helped propel these age ranges into the group of fastest growing,with residents aged zero to 4 registering the third largest gain (158.1%). As a result,the young and the old achieved a near-balance in twenty-year absolute population change:southeast Pasco added 7,147 residents under 25 and 8,739 residents over 65. The effect of the population growth on the relative proportion of each age range in the area is shown by the percentage of the population in each range. Chart 1 (See page 14) shows the population distribution by age for southeast Pasco for 1980,1990 and 2000. The national population distribution is included for comparison purposes. In all but four of the age ranges,southeast Pasco is trending toward the national average. In the age ranges where southeast Pasco seems to be diverging from the national average,two were moving away from the national average and then reversed themselves. The other two,15 to 19 and 20 to 24,have consistently been moving in the opposite direction as the national average.

14Demographic Changes in Southeast Pasco County Continued from page 13 are those over 75 and those aged 10 to 14. The 10 to 14 range posted the second lowest growth for the 1980 to 1990 decade,but in the following ten years had the fourth highest growth of all age groups. The opposite is true of the over 75 age range,which had the second highest growth in the 1980's decade,but dropped to the fourth lowest in the 1990's. Absolute growth numbers also show the very small changes in the population in age range 20 to 24,which when combined with large overall population growth rate cause the age group's proportion to fall rapidly. This lack of growth in the midst of an exploding population may be a result of several factors. The 20 to 24 age range is typically the time for college education,which frequently is undertaken away from home. If a young person is not moving away for education,he/she is most likely seeking employment. The commercial activity in the area does not have the strength of nearby cities and thus it would be expected for a young person to move closer to potential employment opportunities. Finally,new housing development in southeast Pasco is geared towards the single family home. Most young people between the ages of 20 and 24 are not in a financial position to purchase a home,even if they have already started a family. Thus,housing opportunities lead this segment of the population to other locations in the metropolitan area. Certainly some of the same causes cited above may contribute to the decline in the proportion of persons aged 15 to 19. In addition,the decrease may also be a reflection of the mathematics of population growth. While the age group did grow from 1980 to 2000,and in fact increased by two-thirds,the growth in all other age categories except two was greater. As a result of being outpaced in growth, the age group's relative share of overall population falls. When looking at population changes over time,it is also important to measure the growth of population cohorts as they move through the age ranges. Analysis of cohorts shows the net effect of population changes while accounting for the passage of time. We now examine age cohorts and follow them,measuring changes in populations,as they age. Table 4 shows the percent changes in cohort groups with each census beginning with the 1980 Census. The striking difference between the analysis by cohort and the straightforward analysis without regard to the population itself aging is seen in the over 75 category. In the straightforward measurement of change,it appeared that the population over 75 was growing rapidly,posting a twenty-year gain of 151.2%. However,the population change measurement by cohort shows steady population loss in the elderly. This population "loss"is a result of combining the populations of those over 65 with those over 75 in 1980,and measuring the difference in this sum versus the 1990 population over 75. The cohort measurement attempts to quantify the net change in population over time and,as applied to the over 75 age range,answer the question,"Are more retirees moving into the southeast Pasco area?"The answer is an unambiguous no. As the population between 65 and 74 ages ten years,that population does not become the entire over 75 population,but merely a part. Assuming no out-migration of the 1980 population,those persons already over 75 in 1980 will remain in the over 75 group in 1990,unless they have died during the decade. Thus in 1990 the over 75 population is the combination of two 1980 cohorts:the 65 to 74 cohort and the over 75 cohort. In 2000,the over 75 cohort is the combination of three 1980 cohorts:the 55 to 64 cohort,the 65 to 74 cohort,and the over 75 cohort. The 33.9% decrease in population for the over 75 cohort in 2000 since 1980 measures the population reduction as a result of death,out-migration and no new influx of over 75 individuals. We find during the twenty years from 1980 to 2000,the over 75 population has not really grown. Rather, other cohorts,namely the 65 to 74 and 55 to 64 cohorts, have been folded into it. If new retirees were moving into the area in sufficient numbers,they would counteract the loss of population through death and the total population would remain steady. Thus,it is safe to conclude that southeast Pasco is no longer primarily a destination for retirees. This raises the question of what age group fuels SE Pasco population growth. All other age cohorts post positive gains throughout the twenty years,indicating that new population age groups are migrating to the area.

19 The 2001 USF Economic Development CourseBy Nolan Kimball,Coordinator of Information/Publications of the Center for Economic Development Research I. Background. The International Economic Development Council (IEDC) is the nation's largest economic development association,serving thousands of economic development professionals worldwide. The IEDC was created in May 2001 when the American Economic Development Council (AEDC) and the Council for Urban Economic Development (CUED) voted to merge the two organizations into one Education is an important component of IEDC's member services. The Council accredits 19 economic development courses around the nation. Each course follows a specified curriculum. The courses are offered by organizations affiliated with institutions of higher learning. Courses last for 5 days and are held year round across the United States. Upon successfully completing an economic development course,participants are eligible to attend the Economic Development Institute (EDI),also accredited by the IEDC, which holds courses in Norman,Oklahoma; San Diego, California; and Indianapolis,Indiana. Graduation from EDI and associated professional experience qualify candidates to sit for the Certified Economic Developer (CED) exam. II. The USF Economic Development Course in 2001. The University of South Florida (USF) conducts one of the longest-running economic development courses accredited by the IEDC. The Center for Economic Development Research (CEDR) offered the USF Economic Development Course for the 25th consecutive year from November 4 9,2001. The 2001 USF Economic Development Course was held at the Hilton Garden Inn located in Ybor City,an historic neighborhood in Tampa,Florida. The Ybor Hilton is within easy walking distance to numerous fine restaurants and entertainment facilities. The Course Director was Dr. Kenneth F. Wieand, Director of CEDR. The Course Coordinator was Nolan Kimball,Coordinator of Information/Publications for CEDR. Other personnel involved were Dr. Dennis Colie, Associate Director of CEDR; Dodson Tong,CEDR's Data Manager and Gina Space a CEDR Economist. Tuition for this year's program was $700. Course tuition offset expenses for instruction,course materials,refreshments,two field trips,two dinners and the graduation luncheon. Three sponsoring organizations,the Florida Economic Development Council,Progress Energy and the Florida Association of Counties provided a total of six scholarships for qualified participants. Each participant received a course book containing materials for the instruction modules submitted by the faculty. Additionally,a group photo was taken of all the course participants. CEDR's website http://cedr.coba.usf.edu contains all of the course information including the course registration form. The 2001 USF Economic Development Course was structured on the required core topics established by the IEDC Education Committee. Topics covered were: Marketing Perspectives on Economic Development Community Development Corporate Site Selection FEDC Deal of the Year Business Retention and Expansion Financing Economic Development Projects Entrepreneurship and Small Business Creation Rural Issues in Economic Development Perspectives on Environmental Issues Building and Effective EDO Workforce Development Analyzing the Geography of your Product International Trade and Development Analytical Tools for Economic Development Strategic Planning in Economic Development Continued on page 20 45 to 54 cohort is the fastest growing over twenty years. But an examination by decade shows the ages of the population influx shifts. In the 1980s,the 45 to 54 and the 55 to 64 cohorts dominated growth. However from 1990 to 2000,growth is spread throughout the cohorts,indicating the influx is most likely families,since the cohorts of young children posted high gains. The typical resident of southeast Pasco has certainly changed over the past twenty years. The notion that the population has grown as a result of retirees and the elderly is plainly false. Families and working-age people have moved into the area in great numbers. As a result, population growth has brought more diversity in age ranges. If population trends continue,the future population distribution in southeast Pasco will look much more like the national average. And southeast Pasco will be associated more with those characteristics common to the suburban neighborhoods of Tampa. 1 US Census Bureau,1980 Census of Population,Table 194; US Census Bureau,1990 Census of Population and Housing,PL 94-171 Data; and US Census Bureau,2000 Census of Population and Housing,SF 1 100% Data.Demographic Changes in Southeast Pasco County Continued from page 14

20The 2001 USF Economic Development Course Continued from page 19 Class activities were supplemented by a case study. Field trips highlighted urban redevelopment and environmental issues in development. Of the twenty-eight course instructors,six hold the CED designation. Three of the faculty members are from academia,two from government and seventeen from the private sector. Thirty-four students from nine states participated in the 2001 course. Forty-four percent worked in economic development organizations, 38% worked for city governments,9% worked in state development agencies,6% were employed by utilities and 3% represented workforce development boards. IEDC accredited economic development courses are intended to be rigorous and extensive learning experiences. Attendance is strictly enforced. Each student was asked to rate the faculty on their presentation as well as evaluate other aspects of the Course. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 as unacceptable and 10 as outstanding,the average rating for instructors was 8.752 and the average rating for the course was 8.594. The 2002 USF Economic Development Course will be held November 3 8,2002. The course site will be determined by spring 2002. The Relocation of Brooksville Regional HospitalBy Alex A. McPherson,Economist with the Center for Economic Development Research A study recently completed by CEDR analyzed the demographic and economic effect of the potential relocation of the Brooksville Regional Hospital. There is a proposal to relocate the hospital to new facilities to be constructed at a campus approximately 3 miles west of the existing hospital. Demographic effects were analyzed using Census 2000 data to determine the number of residents affected in two ways: those who would be farther from the proposed location,and the difference in number of people within a 3-mile radius of either the existing or proposed sites. The economic impact of construction and other capital expenditures to relocate the hospital to the new campus was analyzed for its contribution to the Hernando County economy. CEDR examined the quantifiable economic effects of these investments, which are measurable in terms of employment,personal income,and output. Concerns have been raised about travel time and distance to the proposed site in emergency situations. If the hospital moves to a new site west of the existing location,the distance midpoint between Brooksville Regional Hospital and the closest hospital to the east,Dade City Hospital,will shift. Using ArcView GIS measurement techniques,the shift in this distance midpoint was determined,resulting in a 15 squaremile wedge in southeast Hernando County which will effectively be farther from the new site than the existing site. The population within this wedge,based on Census 2000 data,is 1,265 Hernando County residents who would be farther from the proposed location than the existing location. The proposed hospital relocation will affect other Hernando County residents. One major reason for seeking the relocation is to allow more of the Hernando County population to be closer to the hospital. Population figures were analyzed within a 3-mile radius of each of the Brooksville Regional Hospital sites (existing and proposed) and the closest hospital to the west,Oak Hill Hospital. Again,using ArcView GIS measurement techniques,together with CACI Demographic Data and Census 2000 Information,the net number of residents affected by the shift was determined. Westward relocation of the hospital by approximately 3 miles would provide closer access to Brooksville Regional Hospital for a net population of 5,428 Hernando County residents within a 3-mile radius of the new location. From an economic perspective,relocation of the hospital to a new site will require major construction expenditures,estimated at $30 million for the hospital and another $3 million for a medical office complex. Capital investment for furnishings and equipment are estimated at $2 million for furnishings and $5 million for equipment. Timing of these expenditures has been presumed to occur in the years 2002,2003,and 2004. CEDR used the Regional Economic Models,Inc. (REMI) software and databases to estimate the effects of these expenditures to the Hernando County economy. All monetary figures are presented in year 2000 dollars. The effects of these expenditures may be measured in terms of output,employment,and personal income. Over the 3-year period of construction,CEDR estimates that $17.068 million of the $40 million in direct expenditures will be spent in Hernando County. Due to the multiplier effect,another $9.323 million will be spent in Hernando County,for a total of $26.391 million in increased output expected to occur in Hernando County. Therefore,the economic impact on Hernando County of the proposed construction is $26.391 million between 2002 and 2004. The local construction industry will benefit the most,with an increase of $21.874 million in economic activity. During the construction phase,employment in Hernando County is estimated to temporarily increase by 79 jobs in 2002, 149 jobs in 2003,and 67 jobs in 2004. Most of the gains in jobs will be in the construction industry. Also,due to the proposed expenditures,it is estimated that an aggregate increase of $7 million in personal income for residents of Hernando County will occur between 2002 and 2004. The full text,data,maps,and tables of the report can be found online at the CEDR website,under "Recent Projects" (http://www.coba.usf.edu/centers/cedr/projects.htm).

21 Update on CEDR's Data CenterBy Dodson Tong,Data Manager with Center for Economic Development Research CEDR's on-line Data Center has just added another database to its web site. This data contains the number of business establishments located within a postal ZIP code area throughout Florida. The database also reports the number of employees by industry. The database can be accessed at http://cedr.coba.usf.edu and "Query CEDR Databases."The Regional and State database section now includes a folder named "ZBP"which enables the user to access this type of data. CEDR also has ZIP code business pattern data for 1997 and 1998. For each year,drop-down menus allow the researcher to specify a ZIP code area by name (ordered alphabetically) or by ZIP code (ordered numerically). Additionally,the researcher can specify a ZIP code and a Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code for the 1997 data. The 1998 data is organized by North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes; therefore, for this year,the researcher may specify a ZIP code and a NAICS code. In the 1997 data,Industrial Divisions are identified by SIC codes ending in -. For example,52 is the code for the Retail Trade Division,which includes all 4-digit SIC codes between 5200 and 5999. Industrial Divisions are "headers"for the SIC codes that follow. The headers contain no data themselves. Industry descriptions accompanied by an asterisk represent partially classified establishments. For example,SIC 5600* represents retail apparel and accessory stores that could not be classified into a 4digit SIC category. In a response to a query,the number of "Query results"indicates the total number of industries (4digit SIC codes) located in the specified postal ZIP code area. The query results will be zero if there are no establishments with the specified SIC code located in the ZIP code area. Otherwise the query returns the number of 4digit SIC's with business establishments in the ZIP code. In the 1998 data,NAICS sectors,representing general categories of economic activities,are identified by NAICS codes ending in -. For example,52 is the code for the Finance & Insurance sector,which includes all 6-digit NAICS codes between 521110 and 525990. These NAICS sectors are "headers"for the NAICS codes that follow and contain no data themselves. In response to a query,the number of "Query results"indicates the total number of establishments by 6-digit NAICS codes that are located in the specified postal ZIP code area. The query results will be zero if there are no establishments with the specified NAICS code located in the ZIP code area. Otherwise the query returns the number of specified NAICS with business establishments in the ZIP code. Most economic activity is covered by this data set. However,data are excluded for self-employed persons, domestic service workers,railroad employees,farm workers,most government employees,maritime workers on ocean-going vessels,and persons working outside the U.S. ZIP code Business Patterns data items are extracted from the Standard Statistical Establishments List,a file of all known single and multi-establishment firms. The List is maintained and updated by the U.S. Bureau of the Census. CEDR has developed and provided ZIP code maps for each of Florida's Counties that will help the researcher identify and define a local area of interest. ZIP Code Business Patterns maps are now available for 1997 and 1998,which are a graphical representation of the data. In conjunction to this ZIP Code Business Patterns data,maps for 1999 ZIP code boundaries are also made available. In addition to the ZIP code business patterns data,the Regional and State database section continues to make available the following: Cost of Living. This data set provides relative costs of living for Florida's 67 counties and is released annually by the Florida Department of Education. The average cost of living in a given year (1993 to 2000) among Florida's 67 counties is set at 100% and then each Florida county's relative cost of living is expressed relative to 100%. Education Indicators. The indicators in the data set are graduation rates,drop out rates,SAT scores,average class size,and per pupil expenditures for Florida's public high schools. The Florida Department of Education distributes the data. CEDR presents the data organized by county and covering four academic years beginning with 1996-1997. ES202. This data set is a Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) sponsored collection of job and wage data from all employers participating in Florida's unemployment insurance program. It is organized by 1digit level Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes (and totals for all SIC codes),and describes the number of units (i.e. an establishment designated as a single reporting unit for the unemployment insurance system). The number of covered employees,total wages of those employees,and average wages. The data set is partitioned for each Florida County and provides monthly data (by quarter) from first quarter 1988 to first quarter 2001. A version with annual data from 1988 to 2000 is also available. Gross Sales. This data series is provided by the Florida Department of Revenue and is intended as a measure of economic activity. Gross sales are the sum of taxable and non-taxable sales as reported by businesses to the Florida Department of Revenue. The Florida Department of Revenue reports gross sales and taxable sales to CEDR by "kind"code. In order to protect the confidentiality of businesses reporting to the Florida Department of Revenue, Continued on page 22

22Update on CEDR's Data Center Continued from page 21 CEDR has aggregated certain kind codes and converted the aggregations to categories. The data set is partitioned by Florida Counties and provides monthly data beginning with 1994. Housing Permits. This data set of construction authorized by building permits is distributed by the Manufacturing and Construction Division,Bureau of the Census. The data set is primarily based on reports submitted to the Bureau by local building permit officials in response to a mail survey,although some data may be generated by Census Bureau interviewers or imputed from past data. The data on CEDR's web site is organized by state,by county,and by Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) for each month of a year from January 1996 to November 2001. The data describe the number of units and aggregate value for which building permits have been issued by single-family,2family,3&4-family,and 5-family units. Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS). This labor force data set is prepared monthly by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and describes labor force participation,employment,unemployment,and unemployment rate by county of residence. (Data is also included by Florida MSA.) The self-employed are counted as employed persons in the LAUS data. The LAUS estimates are based on a combination of data from the Current Population Survey (CPS),unemployment insurance claim data,the Current Employment Statistics (CES) survey of establishments,and ES-202 data. Statewide and Florida counties'data are available. The data can be displayed by month from January 1990 to December 2001. Annual averages are also available. Personal Income,per Capita Personal Income,and Population These three data sets are organized by county,or by MSA,per year and are released annually through the Regional Economic Information System (REIS) of the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). The data is based on place of employment and reflect annual averages. In producing REIS,BEA makes use of data that are byproducts of the administration of various federal and state programs,including unemployment insurance,Social Security,federal income taxes, veterans benefits,and military payroll. Hence,the REIS data series,which includes farming and nonfarming,military and civilian,proprietorships (i.e. self-employment) and wage and salary employment, are more comprehensive than ES202. ES202 data covers non-farming and salary employment only. BEA defines Personal Income as the current income received by persons from all sources (including investment income and transfer payments) minus their personal contributions for social insurance. Personal income includes both monetary income (including non-paycheck income such as employer contributions to pensions) and non-monetary income (such as food stamps and net rental value to owner-occupants of their homes). The REIS county and MSA data are issued about 16 months after the year in which the observations were made. Currently CEDR's data center has this information from 1969 to 1999. CEDR has also recently received from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (U.S. Dept. of Commerce) State Personal Income,1929 2000. There are tables with annual measures for each of the states of the U.S. Personal income by major source and earning by industry, Wage and salary disbursements by industry, Total full-time and part-time salary employment by industry, State economic profiles, Transfer payments, Farm income and expenses,and Personal tax and non-tax payments. Although the State Personal Income,1929 2000 tables are not available on line,you can go to CEDR's home page and click on "Request Data from CEDR"to e-mail your individualized data need request. Other items that can be found at CEDR's web site are reports of recent studies and publications as well as links to other sites containing data of interest for economic developers. CEDR's on-line data center continues to garner wide interest. In 2001,annual web hits more than doubled,reaching 109,505 (excluding CEDR staff hits) and averaging a monthly count of 9,125. During the most recent period, users remained at the site for an average of 19.1 minutes per visit.

Census 2000 Data Release ScheduleBy Dodson Tong,Data Manager of the Center for Economic Development Research The Census 2000 has been releasing products at an alarming pace every since data collection efforts ended on the Census deadline date of April 1,2000. Beginning in March 7,2001,the release of the first 100-Percent Data Products was Census 2000 Redistricting Data Summary File for the states. Block, tract,and voting district maps,including population counts for small areas have also been released. From May 15,2001,accompanying selected demographic and racial characteristic data have been published.

PAGE 23

23 Census 2000 data also provides new geographic counts at the smallest geographic level called blocks (a block represents about 100 people),and block groups. Maps of these blocks will show census tracts (a tract contains about 4000 people),which includes townships,counties,incorporated places,and American Indian locations),and voting district maps will show outlines of the voting districts with both precincts and wards. The population series report total population,populations by 18 years of age and over,and population broken down by 63 race categories from the 6 single-races including "other"and 57 multi race options that were given for people that choose more than one race. Federal,state and local organizations use census data to determine eligibility to qualify for a particular or multiple federal assistance programs. According to the U.S. General Accounting Office's publication "Using Census Data for Funds Allocations,Letter Report to Congress,B280035 (May 29,1998)",there are currently about 100 federal programs that include the use of employment population data in determining the distribution of federal funds. Eligibility criteria usually are tied to measures of household or family income and economic conditions of particular geographic areas. Census data are also utilized to define metropolitan statistical areas (MSA). Population data and derived data products are also used to formulate the distribution of federal funds. Formulas may include aggregate population data of a state,MSA,county,city,or zip code,as well as the population data for a political subdivision. Formulas may incorporate the number of peo ple over or under a particular age,or indirectly,per capita income or expenditures. The most important use of census population data is for political redistricting. By law,the Census Bureau has to provide population information within one year of the census-day in order for the states to redraw voting and representation districts. Congressional and legislative boundaries will be defined by each state thereafter. City block,census tract,and voting district maps have been made available as PDF files on the Census web site since May 2001. See the list below for a time line on dates of future Census 2000 Data Products for the next couple of years,along with the lowest level of geography for which they are made available in each release. Contact CEDR at 905-5853 or email cedr@coba.usf.edu for data availability as well as for any customized project needs in using Census 2000 data.

24Population Growth in Florida Counties During the 1990s; Regional Amenities and Business Climate400,000 or more. These large urban counties experienced most of the state's new population growth. The 11 counties were home to 10.4 million persons in 2000. During the decade,they grew by 1.84 million residents. In other words, these counties housed 65 % of Florida's population and experienced 61% of the new growth from 1990. The next tier of counties with populations of between 100,000 and 400,000 were home to 28% of residents in 2000 and welcomed 35% of new arrivals during the decade. The least populous countiesthose with under 100,000 population,were home to 6.7% of the state's population in 2000 and experienced 8% of its new population growth. The largest counties continued to experience the greatest absolute growth,while small and medium sized counties gathered increased shares of population growth.

Population in counties under 20,000 grew by 18.3%. For information on population for each county,see Table A1 on CEDR's web site. Table A1 reports total population in 2000,the absolute change in population during 19902000,the percent change from 1990-2000 and each county's ranking in the state,from 1 to 67. T he Elder l y P opula tion in Flor ida Counties Historically,retired persons come to Florida for the same reasons that tourists visit the state. Warm winters, affordable housing and sandy beaches act as a magnet for tourists and retirees. And,increases in the numbers of both retirees and tourists create demand for new workers in Florida's service sector. Retirees,and the service workers who come to supply their needs as well as to staff tourist businesses,are a major source of population growth. Thus, retirees increase population directly and indirectly through the service sector jobs required to supply their needs. RegionalRetirees &Labor Force Growth: AmenitiesTouristsTrade and ServicesBy Dr. Kenneth Wieand,Director of the Center for Economic Development Research Introduction. Rapid growth in Florida's population during the 1990s was fuelled by the in-migration of two groups. The first group consists of working age persons seeking to fill positions created by the state's expanding businesses,and their dependents. The second group is older persons moving to Florida to enjoy their retirement years. The motivations of the two groups are different. The first group is attracted by the state's positive business climate. The second group, retirees,is attracted by the state's amenities. But,the arrival of retirees impacts job growth and the arrivals of new workers have implications for Florida's retired population. This article describes the growth of these two groups of people in the sixty-seven counties of Florida from 1990 to 2000. We examine the impacts on Florida's workforce and employment during the decade in terms of labor force growth and labor force participation and in terms of employment by industry division. Differences in county economies lead to differences in population growth across the sixty-seven counties. In this article we refer to Tables A1,A2,A3,and A4. These four tables are not reproduced in this article due to their excessive size. To view them,visit CEDR's web site at:http://cedr.coba.usf.edu and click on "Recent Projects,"then select "The Tampa Bay Economy"link,volume 3 #1,to access tables A1 A4. View the performance of your county and compare it to Florida's other 66 counties. If you do not have Internet access but wish to see these tables, call us at 813-905-5854,or write us at: CEDR,USF Downtown Center 1101 Channelside Drive,2nd Floor North Tampa,Florida,33602 There are large variations across Florida counties in employment,labor force participation,industry structure,and the percent of retired persons. The experiences of sparsely populated counties and of densely populated counties have been different in terms of total population, the over 65 population,and in terms of labor force and employment. Rural counties,many located in the interior of the state and in Florida's panhandle,have experienced smaller absolute population growth than have Orlando and the large metropolitan areas located on Florida's Atlantic and Gulf coasts. The article documents the differences in low and high population counties. Population Growth in Florida Counties T otal P opula tion in Flor ida Counties Table 1 summarizes Florida's population growth from 1990 to 2000. The 11 largest counties in Florida have populations of

PAGE 25

25Retired persons tend to live in the urban counties on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. Note,however,that the major metropolitan counties,(Dade,Broward,Hillsborough, Duval,and Orange) have fewer retirees as a percent of county population. This is because retired persons comprise a larger fraction of the populations of smaller coastal metropolitan areas where real estate prices and living costs are lower. Percentages of the elderly are also lower in the primarily rural counties in north Florida and in south central Florida counties. However,some counties in the interior of the state such as Marion,Lake and Highlands counties have proven to be magnets to retirees. Figure 1 reports the distribution of the elderly as a percentage of county population for Florida counties. Certain patterns emerge. The patterns observed in Figure 1 are underscored in Figure 2,which reports changes in percent elderly from 1990 to 2000. Note that urbanized Pinellas and Palm Beach counties have larger than average elderly percentages,but experienced rapid declines in the percent of elderly during the decade. Observe also that the counties in the western panhandle,that have below average elderly population,experienced rapid growth in retirees during the 1990s. Rapidly growing retirement regions are southwest Florida,central Florida,and the western panhandle. The distribution of Florida's over 65-population by county population size differs from the distribution of total population. Table 2 reports elderly population in 2000 and its growth from 1990. The largest counties have a slightly lower proportion of the state's elderly-to-total population. Counties with 100,000 to 400,000 residents compensate for the lower percent in the large counties with 4% greater elderly than total state population. Examining the change in elderly persons during the past decade,one finds more dramatic inter-county differences. The large counties reported 197.237 additional elderly,45.4% of the total increase. Mid-sized counties,however,grew by nearly the same amount,adding 44.8% of the new elders to their populations. Percentage elderly population growth in under 100,000 population counties was nearly equal to that cohort's percent of Florida population in 2000. Table A2 reports over-65 population for all Florida counties and each county's rank from 1 to 67. Those mid-sized counties (population 100,000400,000) that experienced the largest elderly population growth were located in Florida's coastal areas and in mid-Florida counties surrounding Continued on page 26Figure 1 Figure 2

PAGE 26

26Population Growth in Florida Counties During the 1990s; Regional Amenities and Business Climate Continued from page 25 Orlando. The growth of the elderly population within the 22 mid-sized counties in 2000 was itself unequal. The six counties with the largest growth accounted for 49% of the 182,516 new residents over-65,and the six counties with the smallest growth accounted for only 12.5% of the increase. Table 3 summarizes population growth and the growth of the elderly population in Florida's mid-sized counties during the past decade. As measured by the over-65 population,there is no evidence that the state as a whole became "grayer"during the decade. Within the state,the percent of population 65 and older rose in some counties and declined in others. The majority of population growth came about as a result of inmigration,as people from the rest of the U.S. and the rest of the world moved to Florida to gain employment. While Florida may deserve its reputation as a retirement haven,under 65 migrants to the state in the 1990s grew at a faster rate than the over 65 population. This caused the fraction of Florida residents who are 65 years or more of age to decline during the decade of the 1990s. Statewide, decennial population census figures indicate that population increased from 12.94 million to 15.98 million,by about 3 million-23.4%. The over 65 population increased from 2,373,227 to 2,807,597 persons,434,370 thousand-an increase of 18.3%. As these figures make clear,Florida's elderly population grew at a slower pace than total population during the 1990s. As a result,the fraction of elderly persons declined statewide by 4.2% during the decade. Workforce and Employment in Florida Counties: 1990-2000 Florida excelled in new business growth during the 1990s due to its positive business climate,as reflected in its low wages and cost of living. The cost of living in major metropolitan areas of the state remains below living costs in many other metropolitan areas of the country. Lower living costs allow firms to pay lower money wages and at the same time remain competitive in the search for new workers. The advantage of low wages gives business the incentive to create new jobs. The first link in the state's business-climate-employment-growth machine therefore connects the business climate with the creation of new job opportunities by the state's businesses. BusinessEmployment ClimateOpportunities Potential employees are attracted to the new jobs because lower living costs offset lower wages. As workers have flocked from other regions of the U.S. and from around the globe to fill the jobs created by Florida's businesses,their arrival has sustained a rising pool of available labor that firms have utilized to increase employment. The second link in the employment chain has been the simultaneous increase in the supply of labor and its employment in Florida's growing business sector. Workforce Growth BusinessEmployment ClimateOpportunities Employment Growth Florida's economy mirrored the strong national U.S. economy during most of the 1990s. Over the latter part of the decade unemployment rates declined state-wide,and employment became a larger fraction of the total workforce. However,the behavior of employment and workforce participation was not the same throughout the state. In particular,the experience was different in small counties than in the state's more urbanized areas. La bor F or ce in Flor ida Counties In 2000,7.49 million of Florida's 15.98 million residents were in the labor force. To be in the labor force an individual has to be either 1) employed or 2) actively seeking employment. Florida's labor force grew by 1,022,507 persons during the decade,an increase of 13.6%. Labor force growth was different in the small and

Lauderdale PMSA52.948.0 Miami PMSA52.946.8 West Palm Beach-Boca Raton49.445.8 The results of Table 4 are comparable to those of Table 1. The growth in labor force in counties of 100,000 to 400,000 is even greater as a percentage of the total than their percentage of growth in population. Counties of under 100,000,on the other hand,have labor forces that are growing only one-half as rapidly as the 8% increase in population. Given that only part of this discrepancy is explained by an increase in the percent of over-65 persons (22.9% of total growth vs. 15.5% of the state's population growth in 2000),labor force participation is declining in Florida's non-metropolitan counties. W or kf or ce P ar ticipa tion in Flor ida Counties The labor force participation rate is the percent of the population that is active in the labor force. Forty-seven percent of Florida residents were actively engaged in the labor force during 2000,either as employees or as job seekers. Labor force participation rates varied among Florida counties from a high of 60% in Seminole County to a low of 25% in Union County. Although there is significant variation within population groups,labor force participation tends to be higher in more populous counties. If we classify all counties in Florida as metropolitan or non-metropolitan,all counties that had 120,000 residents or more in 2000 either constituted or were part of a metropolitan statistical area (MSA). Santa Rosa County (population 117,743),Nassau County (population 57,663) and Gadsden County (population 45,087) are also parts of the MSA. (The composition of metropolitan areas is determined by commuting patterns.) This dichotomy suggests that one may view 100,000 population as an approximate dividing line between metropolitan and non-metropolitan counties. Table 5 reports participation rates in 2000 and the change in participation rates from 1990-2000 by population size. Table 5 reveals a steady decline in labor force participation rates as county population declines. Participation rates are higher in metropolitan areas than in non-metro areas. They are significantly lower in rural counties with less than 20,000 population.

Moreover,labor force participation has fallen more rapidly in non-metropolitan counties. The average labor force participation rate for counties with less than 20,000 population was under 35% in 2000 and represented a 7.2% drop from 1990. Significant differences in labor force participation exist between Florida's MSAs. Most MSAs experienced declines in participation rates during the 1990s. An exception was the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater metropolitan area. Table 6 reports labor force participation rates for Florida's MSAs with over 1,000,000 population. Some of the disparity in labor force participation rates in larger counties is related to the percent of population over 65. This population cohort has lower than average workforce participation rates. Chart 1 reveals a negative relationship between the over 65 population and labor force participation in counties of 100,000 persons and over.

Continued on page 3028The data also dispel any thoughts that low labor force participation in rural counties is due to a concentration of retired persons in those counties. The negative relationship between age and labor force participation observed in counties with over 100,000 persons does not hold in counties of less than 100,000. The percent of elderly in the smaller counties is smaller-generally between 5% and 20%. The percent of elderly varies less across rural counties than it does in urban counties. Table A3 reports workforce,workforce growth,and workforce participation,and the ranking by county,for each of Florida's 67 counties. Emplo yment in Flor ida Counties Employment growth in Florida continues to exceed national employment growth. Payroll employment statewide grew 1,526,703,from 5,352,571 to 6,879,274. The increase represents 28.5% growth over the decade. But employment growth was not spread out evenly over the state. Table 7 summarizes payroll employment by county population for 2000 and growth from 1990.

The table also reports that, from 1990 to 2000,non-metropolitan counties with fewer than 100,000 residents produced only 3.6% of new jobs. New jobs generated as a percent of total jobs was below the share of state employment held by these counties in 1990. The fact that employment in nonmetropolitan counties was only 4.4% of the state total, labor force was 5.4% of the state total,and population was 6% of the state total underscores the relative weakness of labor markets in less populous counties. The ten-year trend indicates that this weakness is becoming more pronounced-population grew by 8% in the smaller counties but employment only by 3.6%,from 1990 to 2000. Table 8 reports the percentage growth in employment from 1990 to 2000 by county population size. Table 8 fails to reveal significant variation in employment growth within each group of counties. Among the large counties in the state,Miami-Dade County experienced the slowest employment growth, 13%,over the decade. Orange County grew fastest, adding jobs at close to a 53% rate. Counties with under 100,000 in 1990 grew somewhat more slowly than the state average. As is the case for population and labor force,smaller counties experienced much slower employment growth than did larger counties. The 13% 10-year growth rate in counties that had fewer than 20,000 residents in 2000 was only one-half of the statewide average. Table A4 reports payroll employment in 2000 by industry division (1-digit standard industrial classification) for every county in Florida. Table 9 ranks each county by percent growth employment in each 1-digit industry division. The five counties having the largest number of industries ranked high by employment growth are Wakulla,St. Lucie, Santa Rosa,Flagler,and Seminole. (See Table 9 on page 29) Shift in the Shar e of County Emplo yment Many of the differences in growth rates in employment by county population size appear to stem from different business climates in the large and small counties of Florida. Business climate,by extension, explains differences in labor force and population growth as well. A county's business climate determines the growth and composition of business activity and employment within the county. An overview of the sources of employment growth in a county can be gained with analysis of the shift in the county's share of total national employment. So-called shift-share analysis first computes the number of employees in a county that exceed or fall short of employment changes at the national level. This total "shift in share"is then divided into growth that stems from across-the-board employment changes in a county vs. the nation,and the part of employment

30 Population Growth in Florida Counties During the 1990s; Regional Amenities and Business Climate Continued from page 28 growth that is due to differences in industry structure in the county and the nation. We will refer to the across the board growth as the "competitive shift". The competitive shift reflects the fact that Florida has been more successful than the nation in creating new jobs in every industry. We will refer to the shift in share resulting from differing industry structures in Florida and the U.S.-growth based on concentration in high-growth industries in Florida-as the "industry mix-shift". The industry-mix shift reflects the fact that Florida's employment structure is weighted towards the rapidly growing service and financial sectors and away from more slow-growing basic industries,such as mining and primary manufacturing. A brief description of the equations used to calculate the shift-share amounts is provided in an appendix to this article. CEDR's analysis of county shift in share compares non-farm payroll employment in Florida with the U.S. Of Florida's 1,414,754 non-farm payroll employment increase,889,989 can be explained by the 17% change in U.S. non-farm payroll employment. Florida,however, grew faster than the U.S.,adding 524,765 additional workers. The additional employment was split evenly between greater across-the-board employment gains generated by the state's overall business climate (234,729) and by the state's industrial structure being concentrated in fast growing industries (290,035 new employees). Once again,smaller population counties experienced different growth patterns than did the larger population counties. Table 10 reports employment changes for counties with over 100,000 population,most of which are in MSAs,and for counties with less than 100,000 population,most of which are outside of MSAs. Table 10 reports that the positive shift in share of employment in populous counties,as for the state,is evenly split between all-industry growth in excess of the U.S. average-the competitive shift-and employment growth resulting from a high proportion of high-growth industries-the industry-mix shift. The total shift in share is much smaller in non-metropolitan counties. For counties with fewer than 20,000 residents,the total shift is actually negative and appears to result from competitive disadvantages faced by businesses in the rural counties. Chart 2 shows the correlation of employment growth in major industry divisions in the U.S. and in Florida during the 1990s. The chart trend line,which estimates the quantitative nature of the relationship between Florida and U.S. employment,supports conclusions from the shift-share approach. The trend line intercept is positive,indicating that overall,Florida employment outgrew the nation. The individual industry points show that,in services,Florida outgrew the nation 51% to 45%.

These industries are often referred to as "primary activities." Chart 3 displays the percentage of primary employment in a scatter diagram. Chart 3 demonstrates that the proportion of employment in primary industries declines as the population increases. Counties in Florida with more than 500,000 residents do not employ over 10% of their workforces in primary production,but the proportion rises to over 60% in some of the state's smallest counties.

PAGE 31

31 The concentration of primary industry employment explains much of the difference in the industry-mix shift by county population size. While many primary industry jobs pay good wages,primary industry employment grows less rapidly than the national average. Slow primary industry employment growth is rooted in several factors. One factor is the tendency to move some types of primary jobs to low wage countries. A second factor is the rapid automation in primary industries. Automation replaces workers with new machines and production processes. A third factor is a shift in consumer spending,away from primary goods and from products produced with primary products as inputs,toward services and finished products that have smaller primary product components. The Future of Employment in Florida Counties Florida demographic trends suggest that the state's urban counties can expect continued population growth in the coming decade. Counties that are "built-out"will experience rising real estate prices. Higher real estate costs will generate in-fill development in developed counties,but total population growth will nevertheless be small. Smaller population increases in developed counties does not mean an end to employment growth. Developed counties will attract employees from surrounding counties. Moreover,retired persons who move to surrounding counties where cost of living is lower will be replaced by working age residents. An example of population replacement during the 1990s may have been the relocation of older Pinellas County residents,as the county's over 65 population fell by 14,205. Urban counties that retain developable land will experience more extensive population growth than will built-out counties. County leadership in rapidly growing urban counties must carefully manage population and industry growth. Counties that have less than 100,000 residents are experiencing economic difficulties. Their economies are based upon slow-growing industries. And over time, population increases have grown faster than workforce. Workforce in turn has grown faster than employment. Counties with fewer than 20,000 residents actually showed declines in their labor forces and nearly zero employment growth during the decade of the 90'sa period of strong economic performance in the nation. Florida counties that have smaller populations and are not adjacent to population centers,but that nevertheless wish to increase employment opportunities for county residents must overcome the hurdles imposed by a dearth of fast-growing industries. Several strategies have been proposed. 1. Continue to compete for primary goods producing firms. This is difficult,because the paucity of new jobs means fierce competition at home and abroad. 2. Identify service activities that require competitive wages and that do not require the extensive infrastructure,suppliers and customers found only in urban areas. Small call centers may locate in small cities,given that they can access required employees. Counties with interstate highway access have attracted outlet malls that cater to auto-tourist traffic. Many small counties seek to develop natural resources for tourism. Given the important prerequisite of natural amenities (watercourses,state parks,forests,and beaches) this strategy has the advantage of targeting a rapidly growing industry nationally and within the state. 3. Compete for regional transportation,power,and public sector infrastructure. Examples are airports, power-generating facilities,and state enterprises that can operate within rural infrastructure. Some rural counties have,for example attracted correctional facilities; others are home to state highway maintenance garages. For detailed information for each of Florida's 67 counties,see tables A1 through A4 on CEDR's web site at http://cedr.coba.usf.edu. See the text box on page 1. Appendix:Calculating the Total Shift, the Competitive Shift,and the Industry Mix Shift in shift-share analysis. The formula for the total shift by county is total the difference between 2000 employment in county A and the product of 1) [U.S. employment in 2000/U.S. employment in 1990] and 2) 1990 employment in county A. For example,in Alachua County: This is 7,192 workers over those predicted by national growth. The formula for the competitive shift in employment is the sum over 9 industry divisions of the difference between employment in that industry and growth predicted by the national growth rate in that industry. i is industry i,one of 9 major industry divisions E00iis Employment in industry i in 2000 E90iis Employment in industry i in 1990 Eus00iis Employment in the U.S. in industry i in 2000 Eus90iis Employment in the U.S. in industry i 1990 For example in Alachua County if "industry i" =2 (2 is the SIC for manufacturing),Alachua manufacturing employment was 5,549 in 2000 and 4,782 in 1990. The term for Alachua County's competitive shift in manufacturing is 919: 919 = Continued on page 32

This indicates that Alachua County grew on average more slowly than the U.S. on an industry by industry basis. The industry-mix shift is calculated as the difference between the total shift and the competitive shift. For Alachua County the industry-mix shift is: Industry-mix shift = 7,192 (-4,392) = 11,584 These numbers indicate that Alachua was heavily weighted toward industries that on average grew more rapidly than average during the decade of the 1990s.
